I'm happy to announce on New Year's Eve that my latest anthology: Best Horror Short Stories 1850-1899: A 6a66le Horror Anthology is published! http://www.andrewbarger.com/besthorrorshortstories1850.html It contains the best horror stories from the last half of the 19th century, including shocking tales from popular American and Victorian authors.
Andrew Barger (that would be me), award-winning author and editor of Phantasmal: Best Ghost Short Stories 1800-1849 http://amzn.to/2g3hyLm and 6a66le: Best Horror Short Stories 1800-1850 http://amzn.to/2gwTdf8 has researched the finest horror stories for the last half of the nineteenth century and combined them in one haunting collection. I have added my familiar scholarly touch by annotating the stories, providing story background information, author photos and a list of horror stories considered to settle on the most frightening and well-written tales.
