Classic horror stories?

I am a big fan of horror stories, and love classic/old literature. I have read Mary Shelly's "Frankenstein", Bram Stoker's "Dracula" The Grim Fairytales (if that counts), and Many of Edgar Allen Poes works. I am looking for more books similar or of interest to those. I've read stephen kind and darran shan and people like them. So preferably someone new

    H. P Lovecraft once wrote an essay on "weird fiction," I'd say it is still one of the more extensive reviews of such fiction in the 19th and early 20th centuries. It's easily available in any of the collections of his work.

    Oh and read Lovecraft while you're at it.
