    This is a generously illustrated book, which contains b&w reproductions of classic and pulp illustrations, movie stills, paintings, engravings, historic frontispieces, and even a complete E.C. Comics horror story! It is a scholarly treatment of the horror genre, in all its historic manifestations. Most chapters include an exemplary short story, to give the reader a first-hand experience of the source materials which Daniels has drawn upon. Authors include Poe, Machen, Lovecraft, Bierce, and [...]

    Great study of horror in popular culture, literature and film from the distant past to the early 1980's, interspersed with some terrific, if sometimes familiar shorts horror stories. Well worth a look. Les Daniels, who recently passed wrote with a light touch, but was always extremely informative and his enthusiasm for the subject shines through on every page.

    I got this book as a kid in the mid-1970s, and it opened my world to Lovecraft, Tarot, the Golden Dawn, Ambrose Bierce, Gothic literature, the Decadent art movement, and so very much more. The single best book I've read on the subject, LIVING IN FEAR is dated, but crying out for a revised edition.
