Описание: Ambrose Bierce was one of the strangest phenomena of American letters. The adjectives used to describe his writing -- and character -- tend to have a rather uncomplimentary ring: venomous, vindictive, paranoid, rancorous, malevolent; yet few would deny his brilliance of intellect and style. About half of his fiction output consisted of stories of horror and the supernatural, a genre which appealed to his psychic constitution and may have reflected a deep inner torment.
This volume contains 24 of Bierces best tales of the unknown. Morbid, cynical, eerie, they take you to a twilight region of flesh and spirit -- and into the darkest recesses of the human mind. These are unusual constructions of terror and grim irony, reminiscent of Poe, the Gothic novel, and the Romantic short story, but having the unmistakable individual stamp of a man who knew first-hand something of the fears and specters which haunt men.
In this volume you will come across a number of old favorites: An Inhabitant of Carcosa, The Eyes of the Panther, The Death of Halpin Frayser, An Adventure at Brownville, and such classics as The Middle Toe of the Right Foot, The Damned Thing, and Moonlit Road, a minor masterpiece in which events of the story are told from three different points of view, including that of the victim as spoken through a medium. You will also find some less familiar, but equally fascinating stories and pieces not available elsewhere, including Visions of the Night, in which Bierce gives us a rationale for his reverse holiness and the surrealistic morality that permeates these writings. Bierces characters -- possessed poets, shabby aristocrats, grimy professional men, revived corpses, haunted malefactors -- live in a spare, perverse world. Patricide, the revenge of the dead, inexplicable disappearances, dreadful ironies, hypnotism and second sight, and the like, form much of the substance of these unsettling tales.

Tales of Old Japan: Folklore, Fairy Tales, Ghost Stories and Legends of the Samurai

Автор: Mitford A. B.
Название: Tales of Old Japan: Folklore, Fairy Tales, Ghost Stories and Legends of the Samurai

Описание: The member of a distinguished British literary family, A. B. Mitford traveled widely with his parents as a youth and lived in various European countries. From 1866-70, he served as an attache with the British legation at Edo (Tokyo) -- one of the first foreign diplomats to do so. During his brief stay there, Mitford lived through a period of dramatic and tumultuous change in Japanese history. A feudal nation on his arrival, Japan had entered the era of "Westernization" before he left some three years later. During that time, however, he quickly and thoroughly mastered the Japanese language and acted as an interpreter between the young Japanese Emperor and British royalty.
Mitford's famous collection of classic tales (the first to appear in English) covers an engrossing array of subjects: grisly accounts of revenge, knightly exploits, ghost stories, fairy tales, folklore, a fascinating eyewitness account of a hara-kiri ceremony, gripping narratives of vampires and samurai, Buddhist sermons, and the plots of four Noh plays.
A treasury, as well, of information on most aspects of Japanese life, with information on locales, customs, and characters, the illustrated volume delights as it entertains, chronicling acts of heroism, devotion, ruthlessness, and chivalry that illuminate the island nation's culture.
"One of the first and in many ways still one of the best books on Japan." -- The Japanese Times.
"An excellent introduction to Japanese literature." -- Mainichi Daily News.

The Canterville Ghost and Other Stories

Описание: Renowned for his poetry, plays, essays, and conversational skills, Oscar Wilde also wrote delightfully entertaining works of short fiction. This volume contains four of his finest. Most celebrated is The Canterville Ghost, a delightfully comical tale centering around the ghost of Sir Simon de Canterville, who for some 300 years has terrorized the residents and employees of Canterville Chase. When the house is bought by the Otises, an American family that refuses to believe in such "supernatural" nonsense, hilarious results ensue. Also included here are "The Sphinx Without a Secret," about an enigmatic woman who carries the key to a mystery with her to the grave; "The Model Millionaire," the charming story of aelightful, ineffectual young man with a perfect profile and no profession"; as well as "Lord Arthur Savile's Crime." Rounding out the volume are Wilde's lyrical "Poems in Prose," including "The Artist," "The Doer of Good," "The Disciple," and 3 more. These diverting stories offer the wit, whimsy, and imaginative gusto of one of the 19th century's most scintillating masters of the English language.

Описание: A blind musician with amazing talent is called upon to perform for the dead. Faceless creatures haunt an unwary traveler. A beautiful woman -- the personification of winter at its cruelest -- ruthlessly kills unsuspecting mortals. These and 17 other chilling supernatural tales -- based on legends, myths, and beliefs of ancient Japan -- represent the very best of Lafcadio Hearn's literary style. They are also a culmination of his lifelong interest in the endlessly fascinating customs and tales of the country where he spent the last fourteen years of his life, translating into English the atmospheric stories he so avidly collected.
Teeming with undead samurais, man-eating goblins, and other terrifying demons, these 20 classic ghost stories inspired the Oscar(R)-nominated 1964 film of the same name.

Описание:

"Contains a number of excellent stories, including several considered Bierce's best. I have to say, all of them were quite good, and I was impressed at how so many of them are still terrifying and suspenseful over a hundred years after Bierce wrote them." -- Battered, Tattered, Yellowed & Creased
Famed for the mordant wit and satire of his essays and newspaper columns, Ambrose Bierce (1842-1914) also possessed a fascination with the macabre. His masterful tales of the supernatural bespeak an imagination generations ahead of its time, exhibiting impressionistic conceits of reality in which space and time expand and contract according to individual perception.
This stimulating and provocative collection of twelve of Bierce's finest ghost and horror stories abounds in crimes of passion, restless specters seeking revenge, haunted houses, forewarnings of doom, and sound minds deranged by contact with the spirit world. Selections include "The Eyes of the Panther," a chilling account of a young woman's supernatural link to a beast of the forest; "A Watcher by the Dead," in which a madcap wager has ghastly consequences; "The Man and the Snake," a hallucinogenic encounter between serpent and human; "Moxon's Master," a nineteenth-century caveat against the coming Machine Age; the celebrated title story; and seven others.
