Summary

A German U-boat embarks on a horrifying journey after one of its crew claims a strange souvenir in this tale by the author of “The Call of Cthulhu”.During World War I, a German U-boat sinks a British freighter. Karl Heinrich, Graf von Altberg-Ehrenstein, a lieutenant-commander in the Imperial German Navy, orders the ship to fire on the British survivors and their lifeboats before submerging. After the U-boat surfaces again, a dead sailor is found clinging to the deck with a mysterious ivory talisman in his pocket. Heinrich’s second-in-command pockets the charm just before the body is thrown overboard. And thus begins the ship’s journey into madness . . .

    The Castle of Otranto is a 1764 novel by Horace Walpole. It is generally held to be the first gothic novel, initiating a literary genre which would become extremely popular in the later 18th century and early 19th century. Thus, Castle, and Walpole by extension is arguably the forerunner to such authors as Ann Radcliffe, Bram Stoker, Daphne du Maurier, and Stephen King.

    Short stories have always been a sort of instant access into an author’s brain, their soul and heart.  A few pages can lift our lives into locations, people and experiences with a sweep of landscape, narration, feelings and emotions that is difficult to achieve elsewhere. 
     
    In this series we try to offer up tried and trusted ‘Top Tens’ across many different themes and authors. But any anthology will immediately throw up the questions – Why that story? Why that author?  
     
    The theme itself will form the boundaries for our stories which range from well-known classics, newly told, to stories that modern times have overlooked but perfectly exemplify the theme.  Throughout the volume our authors whether of instant recognition or new to you are all leviathans of literature. 
     
    Some you may disagree with but they will get you thinking; about our choices and about those you would have made.  If this volume takes you on a path to discover more of these miniature masterpieces then we have all gained something. 
     
    An impossible choice.  An endless feast of talents.  Within these 10 stories are all the glory, the ambition and talent of authors that are now known and beloved by us all.  Genius in every name.
