American Supernatural Tales

Penguin Horror Series


Formats & editions


Part of a six-volume series of the best in classic horror, selected by Academy award-winning director Guillermo del Toro.

American Supernatural Tales is the ultimate collection of weird and frightening American short fiction. As Stephen King will attest, the popularity of the occult in American literature has only grown since the days of Edgar Allan Poe. The book celebrates the richness of this tradition with chilling contributions from some of the nation's brightest literary lights, including Poe himself, H. P. Lovecraft, Shirley Jackson, Ray Bradbury, Nathaniel Hawthorne, and-of course-Stephen King. By turns phantasmagorical, spectral, and demonic, this is a frighteningly good collection of stories.
