From the Publisher
Part of a new six-volume series of the best in classic
horror, selected by award-winning director Guillermo del
Filmmaker and longtime horror literature fan Guillermo del Toro
serves as the curator for the Penguin Horror series, a new
collection of classic tales and poems by masters of the genre.
Included here are some of del Toro's favorites, from Mary Shelley's
Frankenstein and Ray Russell's short story "Sardonicus,"
considered by Stephen King to be "perhaps the finest example of the
modern Gothic ever written," to Shirley Jackson's The Haunting
of Hill House and stories by Ray Bradbury, Joyce Carol Oates,
Ted Klein, and Robert E. Howard. Featuring original cover art by
Penguin Art Director Paul Buckley, these stunningly creepy deluxe
hardcovers will be perfect additions to the shelves of horror,
sci-fi, fantasy, and paranormal aficionados everywhere.
The epic battle between man and monster reaches its greatest pitch
in the famous story of Frankenstein. In trying to create
life, the young student Victor Frankenstein unleashes forces beyond
his control, setting into motion a long and tragic chain of events
that brings Victor himself to the very brink. How he tries to
destroy his creation, as it destroys everything Victor loves, is a
powerful story of love, friendship . . . and horror.
