George Fielding Eliot – The Copper Bowl

In this gruesome tale, a soldier refuses to become a traitor – but his lover’s stomach is not so strong . . .

Pan Macmillan are proud to present a brand new reissue of the first ever edition of The Pan Book of Horror Stories.

Fiendish, fantastic and downright chilling, these tales were originally selected for Pan by legendary horror anthologist Herbert van Thal. Fifty years on, they are as compelling, evocative and macabre as ever. Highlighted by a new introduction from Johnny Mains, ‘A Brief History of the Horrors’, the legacy of this astonishing collection – that became a defining influence on the genre – is self-evident.
