    Guy De Maupassant is considered one of the fathers of the modern short story and one of the form's finest exponents. The story "Boule de Suif", written in 1880, is his masterpiece. A protege of Flaubert, Maupassant's stories are characterized by their economy of style and efficient, effortless dénouements. Many of the stories are set during the Franco-Prussian War of the 1870s and several describe the futility of war and the innocent civilians who, caught in the conflict, emerge changed. He authored some 300 short stories.

    H. P. Lovecraft is arguably the most important horror writer of the 20th century. Culled from his 1927 essay "Supernatural Horror in Literature”, Lovecraft acknowledges those authors and stories that he feels are the very finest the horror field has to offer, including Washington Irving, Edgar Allan Poe, Henry James, Rudyard Kipling, Bram Stoker, Robert Louis Stevenson, Guy de Maupassant, Ambrose Bierce, and Arthur Conan Doyle. This chilling collection includes 20 works, each prefaced by Lovecraft's own opinions and insights in each author’s work.

    El miedo es una de las sensaciones más intensas que puede sentir el hombre. Desde las épocas más remotas, las historias de terror le permitieron poner bajo control sus emociones más profundas. Situaciones que sobrepasan las leyes naturales, fenómenos desconocidos, fuerzas ocultas, seres imaginarios o reales, pero siempre enigmáticos, siempre monstruosos. Porque la incertidumbre es atractiva, el relato de horror genera nuevos sentimientos, y devela luces allí donde sólo habitan las sombras.
