I technically should put this book on my Abandoned or Hiatus shelf because I didn t finish it But I feel I ve read everything I m going to from this book at least for the time being so we ll call it Read I started out by reading from the beginning as is the tradition with books I hear I went through the introduction and found that the guy who threw this anthology together had a massive boner for Stephen King I ve read Pet Sematary and Salem s Lot and from those books I ve decided I don t much care for King It s the amount of background detail that gets me I just don t need that much infoAnd of course the first story of the book happened to be by Mr King Sometimes that s just the way it goesAfter reading King s story and then the first few pages of the next two stories I started to wonder if I even like horror at all Nothing was grabbing my attention So I resolved to do the following instead of just going straight through the book I d read stories that were either A written by authors I knew ofliked or B mentioned as some of the best installments when people reviewed The Dark Descent It made for a much enjoyable reading experience Here s the stuff I managed to get through with asterisks by my favorite talesThe Reach Stephen King The tale of an old woman who s lived on an island off the coast of New England her entire life There are some things that I think are supposed to be ghosts I can t begin to describe how unhappy I was with this story Here I d heard that The Dark Descent was the greatest horror anthology ever and the first story didn t have anything that I felt could even be construed as horror YuckThe Summer People Shirley Jackson For some reason I thought this was going to be a haunted house story I also thought it was going to be good It s the tale of a couple who decides to stay at their lake house past Labor Day for the first time ever only to find that things are a little different after the Summer This is definitely on the subtle end of horror but the problem was that it was too subtle for me I ve read a lot of reviews where people have said this story is chilling but I just didn t get that I mean I understand why people might think it s chilling in that it s one of those things that you feel could actually happen in the real world But it just didn t work for meThe Crowd Ray Bradbury OK now we re talkin Ever wonder why it is that crowds gather so uickly around accidents Ray Bradbury answers the uestion for us and the explanation is a little unsettling Great storyJohn Charrington s Wedding E Nesbit I read this story not because I knew of the author but because it was so short that I figured I could afford to give it a shot It ended up being much longer than I expected just because I was damn tired when I tried to read it and had to keep reading the same paragraphs over and over again In the end I feel my review is tarnished by the manner in which I read the story It s the tale of a man who gets engaged only to uh something something I don t know I kinda snoozed through the last few pagesYours Truly Jack the Ripper Robert Bloch The first thing I ve read by Robert Bloch and I loved it save for a weird math error when discussing dates that really threw me off A detective from London comes to Chicago in search of Jack the Ripper long after Jack should have been dead from old age He convinces a psychiatrist to join him on the hunt for a famous murderer who may have found a way to lengthen his lifespanIf Damon Comes Charles L Grant A couple splits up and the former husband feels bad for his past transgressions even though he s a hero in his son s eyes When the son goes through a tragic experience certain truths are revealed and creepiness ensues Can you tell I m having a hard time trying to write some sort of review for this without spoiling anything Anyway I read that this story was creepy and while I agree with that assessment it never actually gave me chills Then again I don t think anything in this book did so that s not necessarily a bad thingDread Clive Barker I m not sure what to think of Clive Barker I read The Hellbound Heart a while ago and thought the prose was great and even that the concept was good But man Barker s got a whole different level of sadism than I m used to I used to think that I d never read something that I felt was too disturbing cause I like disturbing Then I came across Barker s work The Hellbound Heart was good but a bit gory for my not normally affected by gore tastes Similarly Dread is a story that is just fucked up but I ll be damned if it wasn t interesting And the ending was great I thought Clive Barker writes stuff that I may enjoy reading myself but I don t know that I d ever recommend it for anyone and Dread is a perfect example of that Great story great writing not fit for most stable mindsBorn of Man and Woman Richard Matheson I haven t read a whole lot of Matheson I Am Legend Hell House a few short stories but I ll be damned if I don t love his work Matheson is definitely my favorite author to be found in this collection even if I haven t read a whole lot of his stuff mostly because I haven t read much from the other authors here either I d read somewhere recently that Born of Man and Woman was one of the first things Matheson had published if not the very first and that it was supposed to be one of the best SFhorror shorts of all time I can see why In only three pages Matheson created an amazing story of a boy unappreciated by his parents only because he s differentThe Signal Man Charles Dickens This was another one of those late night reads that was made much harder by fatigue though I ll also blame at least part of my faulty attention span on the fact that I wasn t particularly sucked in by the story It s about a man who operates a signal station for a train track and the strange things he s been seeing lately I wasn t too impressed with it overall Not as bad as The Reach or The Summer People certainly but not as great as Bradbury Bloch Barker and MathesonCrouch End Stephen King OK Here s the thing I ve always liked HP Lovecraft s ideas but never much cared for his prose He s one of those unnecessary detail guys explaining things that do not reuire explanation And his dialogue is some of the worst you ll ever read And his voice kinda stinks And his stories are often formulaic But the concepts the concepts are pretty awesomeOn the other hand there s Stephen King whose prose I like but story construction I hate Way too much background info from this guy He ll put you through 200 pages of Salem s Lot before he even thinks of mentioning something that might be vampiric in originIn Crouch End King wrote a story that took place in Lovecraft s Cthulhu Mythos And my god is this ever the best of both worldsWe get King s excellent prose Lovecraft s concepts It s awesome The story takes place in London and centers around an American woman who ends up in a bad part of town and sees things that no one should ever see I always felt that the way Lovecraft s characters descended into madness could have been done better King figured out the way it should be Best Stephen King thing I ve ever read though I admittedly haven t read much of his stuffThe Damned Thing Ambrose Bierce Never heard of the author before I got this book but a Google search of best horror authors of all time brought the name up And man am I glad it did This story about a man s unusual death on a hunting trip conjures almost Lovecraft style imagery in my mind I was actually reminded of The Dunwich Horror as I read this And there was a cool semi scientific explanation at the end which I dugYou may have noticed that I didn t include the two Lovecraft stories The Call of Cthulhu The Rats in the Walls in my list but that s because I d read them previously In fact I d read Rats pretty recently and I have to say I had a hard time getting through the early pages It was boring the crap out of me But by the end I was glad I read it which seems to commonly be the case with Lovecraft stories for meOverall the book gets 3 stars Some stories are 5s but there are so many stories I couldn t even get into after the first few pages that it made me not want to even try on the authors I hadn t heard of The Zombie Of His Early Days put this book on my Abandoned or Hiatus shelf because I didn t finish
