WITHIN THE PAGES OF THIS VOLUME YOU WILL COME UPON THREE OF THE DARKEST CREATIONS OFENGLISH NINETEENTH-CENTURY LITERATURE; THREE OF THE DARKEST IN ALL OFENGLISH AND AMERICAN LITERATURE, MANY WOULD SAY. . .AND NOT WITHOUT JUSTIFICATION.... THESE THREE CREATURES... ALL HAVE A GREAT DEAL IN COMMON BEYOND THEIR POWER TO GO ON FRIGHTENING GENERATION AFTER GENERATION OF READERS... BUT THAT FACT ALONE SHOULD BE CONSIDERED BEFORE ALL OTHERS. -—FROM THE INTRODUCTION BY STEPHEN KING- 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 LEGENDARY TALES THAT HAVE HELD READERS SPELLBOUND FOR MORE THAN A CENTURY. THE TITLES ALONE—FRANKENSTEIN, DRACULA, AND DR. JEKYLL 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 OUR VERY HUMAN NATURE. AND THE AUTHORS—MARY SHELLEY, BRAIN STOKER, AND ROBERT LOUIS STEVENSON—EQUALLY 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.
