Read full description of the books:
These really are some of the best horror stories of all time. This is a collection of classic horror tales, the kind of stories that get into your head. These stories don’t have to use the shock factor or blood and gore. These stories creep and crawl and slither across your bedroom floor. They are truly haunting tales. The Table of Contents speaks for itself:
The Tell-Tale Heart by Edgar Allen Poe
Green Tea by J. Sheridan Le Fanu
The Yellow Wallpaper by Charlotte Perkins Gilman
The Bottle Imp by Robert Louis Stevenson
The Great God Pan by Arthur Machen
Dracula's Guest by Bram Stoker
The Monkey's Paw by W.W. Jacobs
Oh, Whistle And I'll Come To You, My Lad by M.R. James
The Country Of The Blind by H.G. Wells
The Willows by Algernon Blackwood
The Beckoning Fair One by Oliver Onions
The Call Of Cthulhu by H.P. Lovecraft
The Lottery by Shirley Jackson
I actually bought this book for “Dracula’s Guest”, as Dracula is one of my favorites. I had read it was supposedly the first chapter in the original Dracula manuscript, but was cut for length. I enjoyed it and wonder about the narrator. I was not familiar with all of these authors (Algernon Blackwood, Oliver Onions) but their stories got in my head. Blackwood’s prose is elegant and enchanting and eerie. Gives me the shivers! “The Monkey’s Paw” is an old favorite of mine. Three wishes is everyone’s dream, right? “The Lottery” has that great build up to the unthinkable. There are many authors in this anthology who I enjoy (Poe, HG Wells, Robert Louis Stevenson) and love having them in one collection.
This collection is excellent. I will get it out often when I want to scare myself.

Read information about the author"Some may ask where I get the authority to compile such a work, and attach such lofty claims to it. I have no advanced business degrees myself, but I have labored in an assortment of metaphorical vineyards over the course of the past four decades, from entry level to senior management positions, in government and in the private sector, and I have paid attention to the commonalities and repetitive patterns around me.
In an era when hit television programs like The Office and award-winning novels like And Then We Came To The End are documenting the futility and anomie that is so often a part of our shared work experience, and the economic chaos all around us demonstrates the inadequacy of so-called professional expertise, the universal verities of business presented in MBA IN A BOOK are more relevant than ever."
“I’ve been in publishing for more than three decades, but I try to keep current.”
So wrote Les Pockell about himself for an in-house publication. Les didn’t just “keep current” – he had an encyclopedic knowledge of everything past, present and future in every field imaginable. He had an insatiable appetite for learning, and for passing along all the wisdom he’d accumulated to the editors he worked with and mentored over his many years in publishing.
His vitality was contagious; his opinions were strong; his brilliance was dazzling. He was well-loved by so many, and will be deeply missed.
