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.

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.
