My Favorite Anthology Book

I don’t read a lot of anthologies but there is one from when I was in college that stuck with me. It is called the Uncanny Reader by Marjorie Sandor. Marjorie Sandor was one of my professors and she was one of the most interesting to say the least.

In my class with Professor Sandor we explored the uncanny valley, and levels of creepy that I can’t even begin to explain. This anthology contains shorts from H.P. Lovecraft, Edgar Allen Poe, E.T.A. Hoffman, and so many more. It’s a perfect collection of automatons and doppelgängers. It is not necessarily a horror compilation but a collection of stories to give you the heebie jeebies.

This reader is compiled of authors all over the globe and various time periods, each story is different but equally creepy. You’ll travel from America to Africa and each experience is worth it.

This anthology is about $10 USD on Amazon. Professor Sandor was one of most exciting and kind professors I had at OSU, I strongly suggest you buy this book and support her.

Do you have a favorite anthology? Let me know in the comments.
