Thanks for these.
Maybe you could put something like , (ed.) after French's name in the post's title to show that he is the editor and not the author of these stories

Good question, Lobolover.

I've added 'Ed.' to the thread title.

its what Lovecraft calls a "cruel story".It'S somewhat similar to "Diary of a madman" by Maupassant,it shows terror without resovling to the supernatural per-se.
