Arkham's Masters of Horror

Arkham's Masters of Horror is an anthology of fantasy and horror stories edited by Peter Ruber. It was released by Arkham House in an edition of approximately 4,000 copies in 2000. The book includes an introductory essay by Ruber before each story and about its author.

Ruber has drawn criticism from the horror/fantasy community for the hostility with which he introduces some authors within the volume - for instance, his accusation that H.P. Lovecraft "had a schizoid personality" and could be labelled "a genuine crackpot."

Famous quotes containing the words masters and/or horror:

    Averageness is a quality we must put up with. Men march toward civilization in column formation, and by the time the van has learned to admire the masters the rear is drawing reluctantly away from the totem pole.
    Frank Moore Colby (1865–1925)

    I know my state, both full of shame and scorn,
    Conceived in sin, and unto labor born,
    Standing with fear, and must with horror fall,
    And destined unto judgment, after all.
    Ben Jonson (1572–1637)
