The Dark Descent
David G. Hartwell
Macmillan, Jan 15, 1997 - Fiction - 1024 pages
In The Dark Descent, hailed as one of the most important anthologies ever to examine horror fiction, editor David G. Hartwell traces the complex history of horror in literature back to the earliest short stories. The Dark Descent, which won the World Fantasy Award for Best Anthology, showcases the finest of these ever written--from the time-honored classics of Edgar Allan Poe, D.H. Lawrence, and Edith Wharton to the contemporary writing of Stephen King, Clive Barker, and Ray Bradbury.

Review: The Dark Descent (The Dark Descent )User Review - Carolyn - Goodreads
I loved the variety in this anthology. From Shirley Jackson to Lovecraft. This is a fear fest. Or should I say, fear feast. Some anthologies seem to be thrown together carelessly. The editors of Dark Descent were very careful. I liked it. Read full review
