Short stories have always been a sort of instant access into an author's brain, their soul and heart. A few pages can lift our lives into locations, people and experiences with a sweep of landscape, narration, feelings and emotions that is difficult to achieve elsewhere.

In this series we try to offer up tried and trusted 'Top Tens' across many different themes and authors. But any anthology will immediately throw up the questions - Why that story? Why that author?

The theme itself will form the boundaries for our stories which range from well-known classics, newly told, to stories that modern times have overlooked but perfectly exemplify the theme. Throughout the volume our authors whether of instant recognition or new to you are all leviathans of literature.

Some you may disagree with but they will get you thinking; about our choices and about those you would have made. If this volume takes you on a path to discover more of these miniature masterpieces then we have all gained something.

In this volume stories from the Masters of Horror take centre stage. Within the words from the pens of Vernon Lee, Edith Wharton, Margaret Oliphant, Mary Butts and others lurk dark intentions of evil. As each story draws you in, so it is that uneasy, unsettling feelings begin to creep into our heads. It's only a matter of time before things go decidedly from bad to much, much worse.
