    This volume starts with the famous M. R. James story of occult revenge, "Casting the Runes", about a slighted occultist out for murderous revenge using his diabolical black arts to achieve it. It was adapted into the equally chilling movie Night of the Demon in 1957. Next up is another famous classic, W. W. Jacobs' "The Monkeys Paw", a brilliantly written tale of greed and getting what you wish for. The third story is "Hop-Frog" by Edgar Allan Poe - a classic yarn about the grisly revenge conjured up by a mistreated court jester.

    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.
