Fantastic find. Of course, now that I've seen the covers there are more than a few (okay, more than a lot) that I'd like to read...

This is fab. :) (I'm building up a collection of this sort of stuff).

What a wonderful site, hama7! I was primed for that after having finished a thorough perusal of this marginally related site, which I had run across years ago and then lost track of somehow.

What a wonderful site, hama7! I just finished cleaning out the lint screen on my dryer and was looking for something less intense to calm down with. Thank You!!!

Great find hama7, thank you. My favourite creepy story is "The Turn of the screw" by Henry James.
I gave myself nightmares as a child, reading this book, under the bedcovers by torchlight.

Do check out owner Jessica Amanda Salmonson's own works. Also, a short-short story by her at the Infinite Matrix, "woodsman and water nymph".
