Introduction by Ramsey Campbell.
OVERVIEW: From 1977 to 1991, Fantasy Tales magazine published tales of terror from the best-known authors in the field, continuing the tradition of Weird Tales. Long unavailable, this best-of anthology from its terror-packed pages returns in paperback to deliver chills from Charles L. Grant, Kim Newman, Richard Christian Matheson, Karl Edward Wagner, Fritz Leiber, Dennis Etchison, and many more. Winner of the World Fantasy Award and the British Fantasy Award, Fantasy Tales re-created the look and—more important—the entertainment value of the old pulp magazines from the 1930s and 1940s, but with up-to-date nightmares and modern-day monsters. These selections of both traditionally creepy storytelling and psychological hair-raisers are illustrated by a wide range of artists specializing in the macabre. “Whatever your taste in terror,” veteran horror editors Stephen Jones and David Sutton promise, “we are certain you’ll be suitably entertained and chilled as you explore these fictional slices of half-glimpsed worlds of horror.”
