There were 30 volumes 1959-1989. The first 25 were edited by Herbert van Thal, and the last 5 by Clarence Paget. In 1990 Paget and Stephen Jones edited Dark Voices: The Best From The Pan Book of Horror. Stories were chosen by ‘big names’ in the horror field. Then Jones and David Sutton put together 5 more volumes of Dark Voices, subtitled The Pan Book of Horror. These contained mainly original material. Few of the contributors to DV had contributed to the original series.
