Summary

This Horror Anthology presents a remarkable compilation from the pens of some of the most iconic figures in literary history. Spanning the gothic, the supernatural, psychological dread, and the simply unexplainable, this collection delves into the deepest fears and darkest corners of the human psyche. Each piece has been meticulously selected to not only showcase the unique style and contribution of its author but also to weave a broader tapestry that explores the vast expanse of the horror genre. Standout works demonstrate the genre's ability to adapt and evolve, reflecting societal anxieties and personal nightmares alike, without overly focusing on individual authorial accolades. The contributing authors and editors, hailing from diverse backgrounds and periods, bring a rich palette of experiences, cultural perspectives, and narrative techniques to the anthology. Figures such as Edgar Allan Poe and H.P. Lovecraft rub shoulders with Jane Austen and Charlotte Brontë, creating an unexpected yet harmonious convergence of voices. This assembly underscores significant movements within literature—Gothic revival, Romanticism, Realism, and more—while also highlighting the often-overlooked versatility of authors known for their contributions outside the horror genre. The eclectic mix enriches the reader's understanding of horror as a reflection of human condition through time. Readers are encouraged to dive into this Horror Anthology for an unparalleled journey across the landscape of fear and fascination. Beyond entertainment, this collection offers a lens through which we can explore the socio-cultural evolution of horror and its impact on literature and beyond. It's not merely a snapshot of the genre's best but an invitation to engage with the multifaceted dialogue between these stories and their authors. Whether for scholarly inquiry or personal exploration, this anthology promises an enriching experience for anyone intrigued by the shadows cast by the human experience.

The 'master of horror' is back with the chilling tale of what lurks in the walls of an abandoned hospital.In this abandoned hospital, pain lives on... and it wants revenge.St Philomena's military hospital has been abandoned for over three years. Now Lilian Chesterfield, who works for one of the most successful building companies in England, is in charge of developing it into a luxury housing complex.But as soon as she and her colleagues start work in the Jacobean-style mansion, their dream turns into a nightmare. They hear screaming from wards full of empty beds. They hear doors slamming and find cutlery scattered over the kitchen floor. Then they see faces peering at them from the mullioned windows.Lilian is pragmatic – she doesn't believe in the supernatural. But just when she's put her mind at rest by scouring the mansion from top to bottom and finding nothing, a former patient of St Philomena's arrives with a warning. The hospital is haunted. And it is haunted by something a thousand times more terrifying than ghosts...Praise for Graham Masterton:'One of Britain's finest horror writers' Daily Mail'A true master of horror' James Herbert'One of the most original and frightening storytellers of our time' Peter James

    It was the dead thing they found hanging from a tree that changed the trip beyond recognition. 
     When four old University friends set off into the Scandinavian wilderness of the Arctic Circle, they aim to briefly escape the problems of their lives and reconnect. But when Luke, the only man still single and living a precarious existence, finds he has little left in common with his well-heeled friends, tensions rise. 
     A shortcut meant to ease their hike turns into a nightmare scenario that could cost them their lives. Lost, hungry, and surrounded by forest untouched for millennia, things couldn’t possibly get any worse. 
     But then they stumble across an old habitation. Ancient artefacts decorate the walls and there are bones scattered upon the floors. The residue of old rites for something that still exists in the forest. Something responsible for the bestial presence that follows their every step. And as the four friends stagger in the direction of salvation, they learn that death doesn’t come easy among these ancient trees . . .
