Reading this thread is making me peculiarly nostalgic for fear. I recall "The Tower Room" by E.F. Benson as being really scary in, well, a nostalgic way. One of those "recurring dreams" scenarios, like the movie "Dead of Night." E.F. Benson--brother of a somewhat more famous writer, I'm thinking (and blocking)--wrote the Lucia series of cute British satire, some of which was televised. Hard to get your head around that. What the heck ever happened to T.E.D. Klein? John Collier is one of my favorites. Though I can't say he ever scared me much, "Evening Primrose" made me want to live in a department store. Like, when there were real ones.
