I've been reading a few of the Edwardian short stories recently. I've been impressed by Machen's The Great God Pan; MR James' Oh, Whistle and I'll come to You My Lad; Algernon Blackwood's The Empty House. Actually most of Blackwood's stuff. Also the Carnacki stories by William Hope Hodgson. Alan Moore's used Carnacki as one of the League of Extraordinary Gentlemen.
No mention of Ray Bradbury yet? Dark Carnival/October Country probably scarred me for life.
And Something Wicked This Way Comes . . .
