A spine-tingling collection of terrifying classics with an introduction by horror master Stephen King. The mesmerizing story of a demented scientist's monster creation; the horror masterpiece that has led to countless vampire novels and films; and the ultimate tale of the never-ending battle between good and evil—these frightening works continue to entrall even the boldest readers. Reissue.
A scientist oversteps the bounds of conscience and brings to life a tortured creation. A young adventurer succumbs to the night world of a diabolic count. A man of medicine explores his darker side only to fall prey to it. They are the legendary tales that have held readers spellbound for more than a century. The titles alone - Frankenstein, Dracula, and Dr. Jeckyll and Mr. Hyde - have become part of a universal language that serves to put a monster's face on the good-and-evil duality of a very human nature. And the authors - Mary Shelley, Bram Stiker, and Robert Louis Stevenson - equally as mythic, are still possessed of an inventive and subversive power that can shake a reader to this day with something far more profound than fear. They gave root to the modern horror novel, and like the creatures they invented, they've achieved immortality.
Mary Shelley was born Mary Wollstonecraft Godwin on August 30, 1797 in London, the daughter of William Godwin--a radical philosopher and novelist, and Mary Wollstonecraft--a renowned feminist and the author of Vindication of the Rights of Woman. She eloped to France with Shelley in 1814, although they were not married until 1816, after the suicide of his first wife. She began work on Frankenstein in 1816 in Switzerland, while they were staying with Lord Byron, and it was published in 1818 to immediate acclaim. She died in London in 1851.
