    I haven't read enough of this to give it a fair rating, but I love everything I have read. It was assigned for school, so I will be reading more of this once the semester is over.

    Great read! I loved having a lot of the classic horror writers in this collection. I wish there could have been a bit more overall but this was definitely a neat find of mine, I might re-read for Halloween.

    Some of the stories you may have read back in your high school days, or when you thought it was cool to be gothic and others you read on your own. While I love this complexity of horror masters, new and old, I wish there was just a bit more, overall. Good read.

    One of the three best horror anthologies, along with Dark Forces and Dark Descent. It's a huge book -- if you can only have one, get this one. One of the three best horror anthologies, along with Dark Forces and Dark Descent. It's a huge book -- if you can only have one, get this one.

    Excellent anthology. Highly recommended.

    Chris Peckover

    Some duds and some absolutely brilliant chillers. More psychological than gruesome, though there are a few of those. And, wonderfully, some horror stories written by some surprising voices: Winston Churchill, William Faulkner, Truman Capote, and HG Wells.

    Since The Arbor House Treasury of Horror and the Supernatural might be the first of a series, I cannot wait to see the development of the leading characters.

    Rating an anthology is difficult for me. While there were some five star stories in this book, there were some one star stories too. The average story scored a four. That aside, the editors did a great job choosing stories that flowed well. The intro to each story was as interesting as the stories themselves. Stephen King's forward may have been my favorite part! A great book for getting up to snuff on your horror writers- a nice little sampling from many recognizable names. Well worth reading. Rating an anthology is difficult for me.

    A decent anthology. It's divided into an older section and a newer section. The book was published in 1981 so even the newer section might seem a little on the old side to the modern reader with authors like Fritz Leiber, Steven King and Henry Slesar. A few of the stories were more like mystery or SF than horror. I liked the Robert Silverberg and Robert Sheckley stories. A decent anthology. It's divided into an older section and a newer section.

    Some good and some not so good stories.The best are the older ones.Some of the new stories are not scarey but just gross or silly.I don't like a lot of graphic violence which is why I tend to read 'classic' stories. All over a good book but nothing exceptional.
