Author of the 13 Best Scary Short Story 1800-1849 is Honore de Balzac
Honore de Balzac (1799-1850), that rotund French author of romances and scary stories, appears next on my countdown of the best horror tales from 1800-1849. I will post a link to his scary story tomorrow. It is one of the longest stories on the countdown and draws some parallels to Edgar Allan Poe's The Facts in the Case of M. Valdemar as well as Nathaniel Hawthorne's Dr. Heidegger's Experiment.
