I'm just reading Ray Bradbury's collected short stories, most of which I haven't read for years. They still hold up pretty well, apart from some of the sci-fi which are a bit too whimsical. Anyway, I seem to have piles of Bradbury paperbacks, of which this is a selection - he always seemed to attract decent cover art.
Further examples here, albeit some are criminally disfigured by loathsome "proudly hosted by ph*t*fuckers" logo.
From the first, I set myself against "literature"; the story was the thing, and no amount of style could persuade me to select a story that lacked genuine, unadulterated horror. For those who wanted something high-brow there was plenty.
