    A nice collection of stories and information on classic and modern horror. Lots of trivia and interesting details that might be appreciated mostly by horror fans (and I am one of them). However, I would mostly see it as a 'passatempo' book rather than something I would highly recommend. A nice collection of stories and information on classic and modern horror.

    An excellent horror primer. It covers film, books, games and everything in between. It's great for the horror fan who is looking for more content in the genre. An excellent horror primer.

    A great little read. The kind of book that leads you to a lot of other great books...and movies...and so on. Highly recommended. Be ready, before you start reading, for the moments when the prepositions and articles start disappearing from the sentences, as if author were lapsing into syntax from old country. Don't know what that's about! A great little read. The kind of book that leads you to a lot of other great books...and movies...and so on. Highly recommended.

    Really nice compendium of lists for the horror buff. It's a short read and there are many things within that I already knew. However as a fan of this genre I found it to be wide ranging and informative. Really nice compendium of lists for the horror buff.
