The acclaimed author presents ';a rich and wide-ranging anthology' of 19th century fantasy and horror storieswith an original introduction for each (Library Journal). Vampires, ghosts, and other horrors abound in this collection of nineteenth-century fantastic literature, selected and edited by Italo Calvino, a twentieth-century master of the speculative. As Calvino explains in his introduction to this collection, ';the true theme of the nineteenth-century fantastic tale is the reality of what we see: to believe or not to believe in phantasmagoric apparitions, to glimpse another world, enchanted or infernal, behind everyday appearances.' This anthology of twenty-six enchanting, uncanny, terrifying, and immortally entertaining short stories includes E.T.A. Hoffmann's ';The Sandman,' Nikolai Gogol's ';The Nose,' Edgar Allan Poe's ';The Tell-Tale Heart,' Robert Louis Stevenson's ';The Bottle Imp,' and many more, each with a introduction by Calvino. ';Impressive and utterly pleasingEach story [Calvino] picks is absorbing, unique, and continually surprising.'Los Angeles Times
