American Fantastic Tales edited by Peter Straub
Published October 2009 by Library of America
Edgar Allan Poe and Vladimir Nabokov; Herman Melville and George Saunders; Kate Chopin and Stephen King.
An extraordinary collection of “terror and the uncanny” and a faultless exploration of the elemental latitudes of the American imagination.
It will satisfy for years, but the first thing you’ll notice is the jaw-dropping gorgeousness of the package, designed by the singular Chip Kidd.
Be sure to get the boxed set.
