Originally, I got this book from my father, who read it and passed it along to me. I lost that copy somehow, and found a replacement a few years back on Amazon. The individual stories are difficult to find at best, quite possibly many are unavailable these days - which is a real shame.
So here it is: Choice Three, with a commentary on a few of the stories below.
|The Supernatural Reader by Groff Conklin|
The Angel With Purple Hair by Herb Paul
A test pilot encounters a very unusual friend who enjoys flying.
For the Blood Is the Life by F. Marion Crawford
Not vampires, no. But what?
The Stranger by Richard Hughes
Mrs. Manifold by Stephen Grendon
Just what happens to Mrs. Manifold is chilling.
Piffingcap by A. E. Coppard
Shottle Bop by Theodore Sturgeon
An excellent story! One of the best in the book.
Gabriel-Ernest by H. H. Munro
They might be orphans for a reason.
The Lost Room by Fitz-James O'Brien
The Traitor by James S. Hart
Angus MacAuliffe and the Gowden Tooch by Charles R. Tanner

Another chilling tale.
The Pavilion by E. Nesbit
Pick-Up for Olympus by Edgar Pangborn
The Swap by H. F. Heard

An absolutely terrifying story.

The Thing in the Cellar by David H. Keller
You ever wonder why children are afraid of the dark?
Devil's Henchman by Will Jenkins

All the others are great stories, but these few stood out to me. Find a copy and read it for yourself. You'll enjoy it.
