- Short story about a guy whose stairwell has a pair of opposing mirrors. One night while he's heading upstairs to sleep, he notices a small black thing near the edge of a distant reflection. Each night, the black thing appears larger and closer, as if it's working its way through the reflections towards him. It slowly resolves into a figure, or part of a figure (i.e., humanoid, dressed in black). The guy's sense of impending doom increases with each successive night.
- Short story about a black blob that hunts at night, engulfing and digesting people. With each kill it gets larger. (When I later got into HPL, the shoggoths reminded me of this creature.)
- Short story about a scientist? engineer? who discovers that a race of tiny "men" capable of phasing through solid matter are invading the Earth.
I read these in collections of stories (all in English), starting around 1967-ish, so the actual stories/books were probably older. Any ideas? TIA!
