Great Horror Stories - Anonymous Anonymous

Great Horror Stories in this case is a bit of a misnomer. According to the inside, this was first published in 1936 as the Great Book of Thrillers.

So, there are quite a few standard mystery stories, a spy story, and a SF story (which is of the disaster type though).

Anyone looking for gutwrenching horror tales should definitely look elsewhere.
