Tales of Terror
A Modern Anthology
And so much more...
Crowding into my mind are other favourites: R K Narayan and his Malgudi Days, O Henry whose stories include The Gift of the Magi, the vet James Herriott and his tales of Favourite Dog Stories, and Maeve Binchy with her uplifting This Year It Will be Different. So many choices to explore and experience!
