Although I only read a few volumes at that time the Pan Books of Horror Stories made a big impact on me in my adolescence For a short time I loved these gruesome tales with their shocking twist endings Around the same time I ate up most of the Edgar Allan Poe stories A little later I went off horror for a while because I was suffering from OCD and depression and had too many horrible ideas already in my head to want to add any It would be a number of years before my taste for horror returnedNow I m starting in at the first volume with the intention of reading them allHere are my thoughts on the stories which make up that classic first collection Joan Aiken Jugged HareThis is a subtly creepy tale of menace something to whet the appetite for the explicit horrors that come in later storiesAL Barker SubmergedAnother subtle psychological story of lingering uneaseOscar Cook His Beautiful HandsThe Grand Guignol really kicks in with this deliciously vile storyGeorge Fielding Eliot The Copper BowlA simple historical tale about a fiendish form of torture which has probably been used in reality I first encountered it in the movie Terror at Orgy Castle 1972 the watching of which is also a form of tortureJack Finney Contents of the Dead Man s PocketJack Finney was the author of the much filmed novel Invasion of the Body Snatchers This story deals with a very different form of terror one to which I am particularly susceptible fear of heights Once again a simple story but one that might well have you hanging onto the arm of your chair as you read itPeter Fleming The KillA very well written if a little predictable werewolf story written by Ian Fleming s younger brother Like so many of the stories in these books this would make a perfect segment in one of those multi story horror moviesCS Forester The Physiology of FearA tale of sadistic Nazi experiments by the author of the Midshipman Hornblower books You may well guess the ending but its jet black sense of irony is something special anywayLP Hartley WSLike Stephen King s Misery well the movie anyway I ve never read the book this is a writer s nightmare and when that writer writes as beautifully as Hartley it is a joy to read This one really had me intrigued from the first paragraphHazel Heald The Horror in the MuseumThis Hazel Heald woman must have been a real HP Lovecraft fan I said to myself as I read this story with its references to ancient Gods and tentacled creatures including Cthulu Later I discovered that it was ghost written by Lovecraft for Heald It s a classic Once again I would love to see it filmed even if the descriptions Lovecraft gives of his infernal beasties allow us to conjure up something horrific than even the most imaginative special effects could probably do justiceHester Holland The LibraryAnother very simple story but effectively creepy because of its detailsFielden Hughes The MistakeNot one of my favourites The central idea is good but I thought it could have been presented a bit powerfullyNigel Kneale Oh Mirror MirrorThis second person narrative that is one which places you as a character within the story who is being addressed by the narrator is one of the most unusual and disturbing in the book It is a intimate depiction of an all too believable evil Nigel Kneale is most famous as the creator of the uatermass television series and moviesNoel Langley Serenade for BaboonsThis fine story is reminiscent of the old EC Comics stories of horrible people meeting an even horrible fateHamilton McAllister The Lady Who Didn t Waste WordsThis is a really strange one It doesn t provide any answer to its central mystery but has a delicious sense of black comedyChris Massie A Fragment of FactAnother strange one Definitely imaginative but a mystery with no solutionSeabury uinn The House of HorrorI m pretty jaded when it comes to horror but this one conjures up an idea so hideously depraved that it shocked even meFlavia Richardson Behind the Yellow DoorAnother gruesome classic with a very memorable final lineMuriel Spark Portobello RoadA well written ghost story told from the point of view of the ghost by Muriel Spark author of The Prime of Miss Jean BrodieBram Stoker The SuawAnother classic story from the author of Dracula It s not hard to foresee the gruesome climax to this story but that is what gives it its suspense and it is all presented with black humour a ear for dialogue or rather monologue as the main character seldom shuts up and indelibly gruesome imagesAnthony Vercoe FliesThe central concept is a common one in horror stories but Vercoe makes something unforgettable out of it by conjuring up a skin crawling sense of disgustAngus Wilson Raspberry JamOne of the very best stories in the collection The child s view of the adult world the complex and believable characters and the shocking but believable ending make this a mini masterpiece of the macabreAlan Wykes NightmareA fine example of the paranoia story
