Overview

Fantastic fiction has existed since man's earliest days of telling tales around a fire. It deals with our most powerful emotions: fear, love and hope. Throughout its history, the short story has always been its most vital form. In short fiction, the boundaries of genre have been established, broken and re-established; the field has become differentiated and complex. The Big Book of Classic Horror, Fantasy & Science Fiction displays the evolution of the genre, filled with significant and powerful works by some of the greatest masters of storytelling.



Fantastic fiction has had an impact on all types of literature, and we can trace its effects via the generations of writers who have contributed to the field, from Bram Stoker, Edgar Allan Poe, Frank Herbert, Franz Kafka, H Beam Piper, Herman Melville, HG Wells, HP Lovecraft, Isaac Asimov, Jack London, Jules Verne, Kurt Vonnegut, Marion Zimmer Bradley, MR James, O Henry, Philip K Dick, Richard Connell, Robert A Heinlein, Robert E Howard, William Hope Hodgson, WF Harvey to WW Jacobs, whose bestelling and award-winning collections of short fiction have proved the durability of the form.



The Big Book of Classic Horror, Fantasy & Science Fiction is a mammoth of a book, containing over 800 pages featuring 46 of the greatest short stories ever told in horror, fantasy and science fiction. It is a book to last the ages.
