First off, I don't know any of these writers (other than the WW contributors of course), but blame that on my non-English upbringing. Much of these old horror short stories probably never made it to foreign translation.

Apart from that, an interesting read and dissection of work. Reminds me a bit of the "making of" features that some movies get, where different contributors commentary and narration can be enabled as "layers" over the original flick.

Having read it, I also think, no, you don't actually need to have known the original to appreciate the analysis :)
