CHARACTERS ↠ The Pan Book of Horror Stories Specially selected for Pan here are 22 terrifying tales of horror by such famous authors as Peter Fleming CS Forester Bram Stoker Angus Wilson Noel Lang. From 1958 to 1988 The Pan Book of Horror Stories was the annual British gorefest It started out here the very first of the 30 with a most unscary black cat on the cover and with some kind of literary aspirations Within a few years it fell nay it swandived into the filthiest of sewers it became caked with disgust and it revelled in relentless crueltyYay There seem to be hardly any reviews of this nasty stuff so here I boldly go The favourites from this first rather feeble volume are AL Barker Submerged Young lad had secret solo river swim sessions Woman bursts on to the riverbank during one such pursued by a man She falls in the river and is drowned The man is later arrested for murder Beautifully writtenOscar Cook His Beautiful Hands A manicurist extracts deliberately protracted revenge on a man who wronged her mother Incest rotting fingers and a deformed baby also loom large Never let it be said that Oscar Cook whoever he was did things by halvesGeorge Fielding Eliot The Copper Bowl Exuisite boy s own tale of torture the hero tied up his sweetheart tied down the evil Chinese intend to extract the vital information from him never never I say I laugh in the fact of death oh but what s this A rat placed on his sweetheart s naked stomach and uickly covered by the copper bowl and a hot coal placed on the upturned bowl what will the rat driven mad by heat then do Nooo anyway the idea turned up later in American Psycho so clearly it must be a good oneJack Finney Contents of the Dead Man s Pocket Companion piece to Jack London s To Build a Fire one of the all time great short stories This guy lives way up on the 16th floor in a NYC apartment and is writing a crucial work related document a window is opened wind blows document out of the window where it comes to rest on the small ledge which runs under the windows but about 15 feet away He steps outside to retrieve it and the nightmare begins Great contrast between inside normal and outside hell Apparently Stephen King

insanityAnthony Vercoe Flies A starving tramp breaks into a vacant Elizabethan house in Holborn and is transported back in time to the height of the Great Plague He finds a rotting corpse and big blowflies attack him Oh well you had to be thereAngus Wilson Raspberry Jam Two batty old lesbian alcoholics have an inappropriate friendship with a boy This is a good oneI guess these horror anthologies are like a time capsule of the fears and obsessions of the age If so people in 1958 were scared of hulking retired surgeons with a Nazi past and a big libraryAnd now on to volume two Take

CHARACTERS ↠ The Pan Book of Horror Stories Ley Jack Finney and LP HartleyStories of the uncanny jostle with tales of the macabre Stories of subtle beastliness like Raspberry Jam; of sickening hor. The First Pan Book of Horror Stories has a lot to answer for It was the first horror anthology I ever read some fourteen years ago now I guess I was hooked from the start and I went back and re read it straight away It inspired me to seek out the seuels along with a whole many other anthologies besides so it will always hold a special place in my heartLooking back at it now I see that it s a bit of a varied collection and some of the stories are weak But the ones that stay with you are the ones to look for and on that note alone I give this a five star ratingAltogether I found three stories here less than average Joan Aiken s JUGGED HARE which opens the collection is short and to the point but doesn t really have time to get going I found the characters interesting but the horror less so THE LIBRARY by Hester Holland is an old fashioned housekeeper arrives at weird house and finds horror type story and never engaged with me at all There are a couple of good ideas here but the finale is very predictable THE MISTAKE by Fielden Hughes is a Poe like story about an asylum inmate troubled by a frightening dream and very tame and dated by today s standardsNext are the stories that are fairly entertaining although not ones I d want to revisit Peter Fleming s THE KILL is moderately enjoyable mixing family curses and werewolves but never lifts above the norm for the genre I liked the writing style the best C S Forester s THE PHYSIOLOGY OF FEAR is one that explores the horrors of the Nazi death camps and makes for gruelling reading but the subject matter is such that I couldn t necessarily enjoy reading it L P Hartley s W S conjures up a nice sense of foreboding in its story of postcards from a sinister enemy and is a fun little effort OH MIRROR MIRROR is uatermass author Nigel Kneale s contribution about the horrible life of a young girl worthy because of the great twist ending THE LADY WHO DIDN T WASTE WORDS is by Hamilton Macallister It s short and ambiguous about a weird train passenger Plenty of unusual stuff going on here Chris Massie s A FRAGMENT OF FACT is the usual spooky house on the moor stuff which has a few moments of excellence amid the typical ingredients Flavia Richardson s BEHIND THE YELLOW DOOR has a predictable plot but some gruelling surgical horror behind it that makes for extremely macabre reading Angus Wilson s RASPBERRY JAM is about a couple of grotesue old ladies and has a moment of inconseuential violence that turned my stomach than anything in the rest of the bookFinally are the stories that really hit home A L Barker s SUBMERGED a simple story about an idyllic recreation spot chilled me to the bone through elouent language and late term horror Oscar Cook my favourite grotesue author despite the sparsity of his surviving stories only half a dozen or so remain delivers HIS BEAUTIFUL HANDS a loathsome and disgusting read which has a great sense of time and place attached to itGeorge Fielding Eliot s THE COPPER BOWL is a historical yarn in which a French soldier is subject to a new form of torture by a Chinese warlord It s pretty sick and downbeat with it Noel Langley s SERENADE FOR BABOONS sees a British doctor in South Africa caught up in witch doctery and really hits home I love reading about Africa in fiction and this one brings the nation s belief in magic and curses to life Seabury uinn s THE HOUSE OF HORROR is a pure pulp outing taken from the pages of WEIRD TALES It s extremely ghastly and hard going and the author wrings maximum torment out of the disturbing shenanigans Full of action and excitement thisMuriel Spark s THE PORTOBELLO ROAD is something else entirely a character study dealing with themes of alienation loneliness obsession and friendship It s no horror story at least not by my definition but the grasp of characterisation shown by the author makes for an enthralling read if it is a little overlong Anthony Vercoe s FLIES is another sickening one about bluebottles providing visceral shock after visceral shock and a good example of charnel house nastiness Alan Wyke s NIGHTMARE which closes the collection is another psychology outing this time a study of persecution I found it utterly believable and no less frightening than a fictional vampire for exampleThat leaves two twin highlights for me both top notch stories among my very favourite from the genre They re also very different in tone Jack Finney the guy who wrote INVASION OF THE BODY SNATCHERS contributes CONTENTS OF THE DEAD MAN S POCKET a brilliantly conceived anecdote about a guy walking on an apartment ledge hundreds of feet up in the air It s the tensest thing I ve read and worked especially well for me as I suffer from vertigo Utterly realistic this had my stomach in knots throughout Stephen King s a big fan of this one and even wrote a variation on the story although it s not on par with thisMy other favourite is the Lovecraftian HORROR IN THE MUSEUM by Hazel Heald with Lovecraft s help Jam packed with hideous nightmare creatures plenty of suspense and slithering horror this makes use of Lovecraft s creations in an original thoroughly entertaining way and is one of my favourite Cthulhu stories of all time A real highlight this Launching Missional Communities like Raspberry Jam; of sickening hor.
