Fifty years ago Pan launched a series of books that were to delight and disgust - sometimes even on the same page – readers for thirty years. From classics in the genre to scraping-the-barrel nastiness, the Pan Books of Horror had them all and they continue to be a major influence in published anthologies to the present day.
We're delighted, therefore, to announce the reissue of the very first Pan Book of Horror, with a new introduction by Johnny Mains. Specially selected for Pan Books, here are 22 terrifying tales of horror by such famous authors as Peter Fleming, C. S. Forester, Bram Stoker, Angus Wilson, Noel Langley, Jack Finney and L. P. Hartley.
Stories of the uncanny jostle with tales of the macabre. Stories of subtle beastliness - like Raspberry Jam; of sickening horror - like The Fly or His Beautiful Hands; and of utter chilling terror - like The Horror of the Museum!
The perfect bedside book - for those with nerves of steel!
