andf Scoured Silk. Particular praise go for Smee and The Shadow. Dickens' The signal Man is very good (little wonder), while Saki's The Open window is a fabulous short horror humor gem. The Story of Ming-Y is slightly naive, but is written with antiquated charm, while The Yellow sign is historically interesting in terms of De Quicey's innovative prose. If one sifts out the tedious, one can enjoy a few hours of nice time, including a couple imbued with a delectable shudder.

With something like this, where we have a number of volumes it is possibly hard to claim the greatest of ghost and horror stories, because as with this volume, some are, and others can be disputed. However all that we have got here makes for interesting reading. For instance we have the likes of Poe and M R James, but not with their usually recognised very best tales, but then we have Dickens with his finest ghost story, and others.
Along with the above authors we also have appearances from the likes of Lovecraft, the great Hoffman, Le Fanu, O Henry, Twain and Richard Marsh to name just a few. We thus have another varied volume here, with stories that some you will have read before, but probably a lot that you have never even heard of, as a number here are not usually anthologised and are possibly quite obscure to people who are not heavily into this type of literature. I must admit there were some surprises for me here, with some tales I have not read in years, and could only just vaguely remember.
If you are looking for something to sit down and really enjoy yourself with, then you cannot really go wrong with this, although possibly if I was to say that this was full of stores of unease, something that we do not often hear such tales called these days, then perhaps you will have a bit more appreciation of what you are about to read.
This is volume 3 so calling it the greatest collection is rather a stretch of the imagination.
