NOT at NIGHT anthology series, edited by Christine Campbell Thomson

Does someone have an overview of the best stories in these collections? They are classical horror, featuring evil spirits, monsters, undead, necromancy, and similar grisly situations, both in local and exotic locations. It is pretty extensive, and I have been unable to sort it out.

Exactly 100 of these stories were also printed in Weird Tales.

(I am specifically looking for tales of undead rising from underneath old mossy grave lids, worms spilling out of their eye-sockets, seeking unrelieved revenge or carnage. Don't believe I ever read a story quite pure like that, although it is what I have been seeking since childhood. The subject seems to go one step too far - being taboo among fine horror writers. It is an undiscovered/unrealized literary art form, I think. It has been done in painting and comics and film, but not in prose. I think the closest I have come was le Fanu's "Wicked Captain Walshawe, of Wauling"; at least it has a really good undead spectre, the best I have seen.)

That is a wonderful page with all those Weird Tales covers. Are the inner contents for all the issues actually included too?!

Of course the content is icluded. Each issue is scanned from the original in pdf format and has about 130MB. I have tried to download several issues from different decades and everything is OK. It is unbelievable one has the opportunity to get the stuff.
