Edgar Allan Poe, MS. Found in a Bottle

Arthur Machen, The White People

Algernon Blackwood, The Willows

Henry James, The Jolly Corner

Walter de la Mare, Seaton's Aunt

H. P. Lovecraft, The Colour Out of Space

"The true weird tale has something more than a secret murder, bloody bones, or a sheeted form clanking chains. An atmosphere of breathless and unexplainable dread of outer, unknown forces must be present; a hint of that most terrible conception of the human brain--a malign and particular suspension or defeat of those fixed laws of Nature which are our only safeguard against the assaults of chaos and the daemons of unplumbed space."--H. P. Lovecraft.
