Harriet Beecher Stowe’s horror work is featured in the anthology “More Deadly Than The Male.”

For Halloween, how about a good, scary story? But which one? Here are a few names you might not associate with horror: Louisa May Alcott, Harriet Beecher Stowe, even Edith Wharton. And yet, during the 19th century (often considered The Golden Age of Horror) women were prolific. Their stories are collected in an anthology that came out earlier this year called "More Deadly Than The Male: Masterpieces From The Queens of Horror." It's edited by Graeme Davis of Lafayette, Colorado.
