I've had this hardcover, with its evocative illustrations by W. B. MacDougall, on my keeper shelves for ages, and I think it's time it went traveling. It includes classic tales - with some excerpts and abridgments, which I found disappointing, though perhaps those samples will induce readers to hunt up the full-length works.

Among my favorites:

Poe's "Masque of the Red Death," a favorite of mine both in itself and in the 1964 film adaptation (which expanded on the story quite a bit, but did so in a way I quite liked).

Then there's "The Iron Coffin" by George W. M. Reynolds, an excerpt from his book Faust but one that stands alone well, and that's absolutely horrific.

And another Poe entry, "The Cask of Amontillado," a perfect little gem of icy vengeance.
