(2008)
A collection of stories by

 
 
Prepare yourself for a spine-tingling journey into the heart of darkness. In this bone-chilling collection, you'll encounter thirteen long-lost tales of terror by famed authors. Whether the setting is an English village, the Brazilian countryside, or the Barbados coast, the madness lurking beneath the beauty of each location will haunt your imagination long after the last page is turned.
In Dick Donovan's "The Mystic Spell," a young man finds the love of his life in Rio, but the deadly curse of an old crone could destroy their dreams if they marry. "The Black Reaper" by Bernard Capes, takes place in 1665 during The Great Plague, a time of wild fear and confusion. When the residents of an English village come face-to-face with the deadly scythe of the Black Reaper, only one daring act of courage can save their lives. In "A Tropical Horror" by William Hope Hodgson, the crew of a ship undergoes a series of attacks by a giant, eel-like sea monster. Will the young apprentice who relates this story survive? Filled with a mix of the macabre, the mysterious, the supernatural, and the sinister, this anthology is Victorian suspense at its finest.
