Weird Tales evil folklore, occult horror. Sardonicus - (1961) - novelette by Ray Russell. Originally published by Playboy, this certified horror classic is an essential read. Stephen King lauded, "Sardonicus" "perhaps the finest example of the modern gothic ever written" Nightflyers - (1980) - novella by George R. R. Martin. Award winning early horror from the creator of "Game of Thrones", need I say more? Horrible Imaginings - (1982) - novella by Fritz Leiber. Leiber's writting spanned several genres, but his Horror was my favorite. I'll bet this story surprises you. Jane Brown's Body - (1938) - novella by Cornell Woolrich. In conjuction with Raymond Chandler, Cornell Woolrich pioneered the genre of noir. I'd describe Jane Brown's Body as Weird Tale noir horror. Killdozer! - (1944) - novella by Theodore Sturgeon. Good Lord! Killdozer rocks! Best "machine gone insane" horror story I've ever unearthed! Kurt Vonnegut modled his most prolific progtagonist- (Killgore Trout appeared in 8 novels) after Sturgeon. The Shadow Out of Time - (1936) - novella by H. P. Lovecraft. This story takes my breath away! Maybe the best ending ever? The Stains - (1980) - novella by Robert Aickman which won the British Fantasy Award. Strange horror, moors and into the void. Aickman needs to be rediscovered. The Horror from the Hills - (1931) - novella by "Bram Stoker livetime achivement award winner", Frank Belknap Long first appeared in Weird Tales. He wrote it after HP Lovecraft described a terrifying dream to Frank Belknap Long. Children of the Kingdom - (1980) - novella by T. E. D. Klein. What a crime Klein didn't write more horror. When Klein applied his pen to paper, golden horror stories spilled out. Hostile monsters beneath New York City! Frost and Fire - (1946) - novella by Ray Bradbury for my money is the scariest story of this superb collection. If Frost and Fire doesn't frieghten you, then check your pulse... cause your dead.
