    While I enjoyed this compilation of Edgar Allan Poe’s “Hop-Frog”, Ambrose Bierce’s “The Boarded Window” and Robert Louis Stevenson’s “The Body Snatcher”, the only one I would classify as “super natural horror” would be the last one, and only at the end. Mostly the first and last stories dealt with the horror of what humans can do to one another and the middle one was had natural horror in it. Though it was no less scary for having the natural scare. 4, solid stars for three solid stories.

    (a) Poe "Hop-Frog" -- pretty good. Draws you in, and you empathize. (b) Ambrose Bierce "The Boarded Window", slow, but a slight punch at the end. (c) Robert Loius Stevenson "The Body Snatcher" -- boring all the way through.

    Three short stories by Poe, Bierce and Stevenson that don't hold up with time. The best story was by Bierce, not because it was particularly compelling, but because it all led up to one great final sentence.
