What a treasure this anthology that contains thirty-two short stories published by American authors in the nineteenth century is. The stories were edited by well known and respected mystery/suspense editor Otto Penzler and include some of the expected stories and authors like Poe's "Purloined Letter" and "The Murders in the Rue Morgue" but also some worthy little known or forgotten gems.

However, that collection has been very uneven in terms of quality of writing. Some years I would read one amazing story after another, while with a different guest editor I would struggle to go through the entire collection.
