(4 stars; 4 reviews)

This posthumous collection of short stories by noted author and historian of weird folklore brings together 36 of his earliest works, many of them brief romantic sketches of phantasmagoric imagery, supernatural occurrences and tales from far away places. H. P. Lovecraft said of this collection in his seminal essay Supernatural Horror in Literature that it "contains some of the most impressive ghoulishness in all literature".
