Macabre tales of horror, mystery, and romance seeped their way into the public consciousness of the late 18th and early 19th centuries. Known as Gothic horror, these morbid stories came from a variety of new voices; Mary Shelley, Edgar Allan Poe, and Robert Louis Stevenson pioneered the craft and were followed in the late Victorian era by Bram Stoker, Oscar Wilde and others. Juniper Books’ Gothic Horror Classics set brings these authors’ dark works to your library…if you dare. The custom jackets are modeled after well-worn Victorian era bindings – yet brought into the modern era with beautiful hardcover books published by Penguin Classics, Everyman’s Library, and Library of America. If you look closely at the combined spines, you might find the shadow of a skull staring back at you! Remember, just don’t turn off the lights.
