Edited by Robert H. Boyer.  Great reading copy in nice condition! Some visible wear to cover, mostly along edges.  Pages have some tanning. 

Dark Imaginings is both an eloquent demonstration of the power of fantasy and a pioneering illumination of the Gothic style. In these sixteen tales the shadowy hues of the Gothic are blended with the vivid shades of the fantastic to produce effects as uncanny and eerie as any in the realm of letters.
