The Horror Collection: Dracula, Tales of Mystery and Imagination, The Strange Case of Dr Jekyll and Mr Hyde and Frankenstein (Collins Classics)
Collins Classics brings you a haunting selection of the finest horror stories from classic literature - featuring works by Bram Stoker, Edgar Allan Poe, Robert Louis Stevenson and Mary Shelley - with additional content.
Complete with a Life & Times section for each author, which offers insights into their lives, works and the time of publication, and a handy glossary adapted from the Collins English Dictionary, this Collins Classics Collection will enhance your reading experience.
DRACULA: This dark, brooding and powerfully atmospheric novel is a classic of gothic literature, casting light on the darkness of the human psyche, and exploiting our deepest fears.
TALES OF MYSTERY AND IMAGINATION: Including Poe’s most terrifying, grotesque and haunting short stories, Tales of Mystery and Imagination is the ultimate collection of the infamous author’s macabre works.
THE STRANGE CASE OF DR JEKYLL AND MR HYDE: Stevenson's quintessential novella of the Victorian era epitomizes the conflict between psychology, science and religious morality, but is fundamentally a triumphant study of the duality of human nature.
FRANKENSTEIN: In the most famous gothic horror story ever told, Shelley confronts the limitations of science, the nature of human cruelty and the pathway to forgiveness with rich language and evocative imagery.
A true masterwork of storytelling, Dracula has transcended generation, language, and culture to become one of the most popular novels ever written. It is a quintessential tale of suspense and horror, boasting one of the most terrifying characters ever born in literature: Count Dracula, a tragic, night-dwelling specter who feeds upon the blood of the living, and whose diabolical passions prey upon the innocent, the helpless, and the beautiful. But Dracula also stands as a bleak allegorical saga of an eternally cursed being whose nocturnal atrocities reflect the dark underside of the supremely moralistic age in which it was originally written—and the corrupt desires that continue to plague the modern human condition.

When Roger Melton passes away, he unexpectedly leaves a substantial fortune to his nephew, Rupert Sent Leger. But Rupert must fulfill one condition if he is to inherit: he must live in his uncle’s castle in the Land of the Blue Mountains for one year. It is here, at Castle Vissarion, that Rupert encounters a mysterious woman cloaked in a wet shroud who is seeking refuge in the middle of the night. Rupert helps the beautiful woman, but she disappears before he can learn much about her. Discovering the identity of this ethereal creature will change Rupert’s life forever.
Presented as a series of letters and diary entries, The Lady of the Shroud was written in much the same fashion as author Bram Stoker’s more famous novel, Dracula, and represents Stoker’s unique and haunting writing style. Due to its unexpected storyline, The Lady of the Shroud has become a favorite within the gothic and horror genre first popularized at the turn of the twentieth century.
