Summary (From the publisher):

The Treasury of the Fantastic presents a collection of fantastic literature from the nineteenth and early twentieth centuries unmatched in its scope and inclusiveness. Dragons, ghosts, dreams and nightmares, fairies, curses and enchantments, the inexplicable and unknown, all are here to delight, to unnerve, to provoke wonder, to catch the reader unawares or, what is sometimes worse, to confirm what had been refused, hidden, and yet profoundly desired. The Treasury defines the achievement of fantastic literature from its modern origins in Romanticism to its early development as a genre, displaying the range of exemplary works produced as supernatural tales, wonder tales, fairy tales, weird tales, Gothic literature, ghost stories, children's fantasy, nonsense poems, and, all too often, as stories or poems that, though indefinable, remain unforgettable classics.

Edited by David Sandner and Jacob Weisman. Foreword by Peter S. Beagle.
