Read Online My Favorite Horror Story

Still, I was determined to find something to read, and when I happened upon this book, a compilation of horror stories hand-picked by some of the biggest names in the genre, I figured it might be worth a look. This is an incredible assortment of stories, and if you have any interest in horror fiction, you are sure to find something here to enthrall and chill you. High school lit favorites like "Young Goodman Brown" and "The Tell-Tale Heart" are perhaps a bit too familiar (though their popularity is certainly earned), and some of the author's introductory exhortations to read their hand-picked stories are a bit much, but far be it for me to discourage the appreciation of good writing.

Theres not a clinker in this entire collection of 15 horror stories chosen by such modern masters as Ramsey Campbell, Poppy Z. Finally, there is perhaps my favorite story here, Ramsey Campbells The Pattern, chosen by Poppy Z. If I had to pick just one story for an anthology such as this, "The Pattern" might well be a finalist.

At the end, the irony experienced makes the story a memorable moment for me.
