I was happy to read a Hodgson story for the first time, though I wouldn't have called it horrifying, it was still interesting. I enjoyed Clark Ashton Smith's charming little story about monsters and Bradbury's story taken by a dead man's point of view. I liked Chambers's story but I thought it was too long for what the story was about. I thought it could have been stronger if it was a bit shorter. The rest were interesting though they did not stand out to me as the others did.
