Re-released - the very first Pan Book of Horror Stories. Win a copy!

Cover by permission of PanMacmillan
This month PanMacmillan marks the 50th Anniversary of the very first Pan Book of Horror Stories by re-releasing this wonderful collection of dark and disturbing stories. And I for one am very excited. I remember reading my second-hand copy over and over in the 70s and 80s until the book fell apart. Happy days.

The anthology, selected by Herbert van Thal simply has to return to my shelves (not being a Kindle babe yet) and is already on my wish list.

You can buy it direct from PanMacmillan, or from Amazon and other outlets.


If you're a UK resident why not try winning a copy? PanMacmillan is running a Hallow'een competition where all you have to do is answer a question, and write a tiebreaker sentence.

There are five copies up for grabs. Enter here.


  1. And may many more of the collection be released.

  2. I saw a review of this in a newspaper last week and added it to my Amazon wishlist! But I'll definitely have a go at the competition.

    Thank you!
