These horror serials cost a penny per issue, hence their name: penny dreadfuls. The penny dreadfuls often paid homage to—and even inspired—many of the more famous narratives of the horror genre.This book pairs three obscure yet influential penny dreadfuls with three of the most notorious literary giants of the nineteenth century: Dracula, Frankenstein, and Dorian Gray, all in one authentic collection of the best Victorian gothic horror ever written. Originally published at a time when dramatic scientific discoveries sparked a cultural fixation on the paranormal, these stories remain timeless in their uncanny ability to prey upon our primal fear of that which is strange, violent, and unknown.This book contains a total of six haunting tales:• Dracula by Bram Stoker• Dracula’s Guest by Bram Stoker (Dracula’s original first chapter, not published until after Stoker’s death)• Frankenstein by Mary Shelley• Wagner the Wehr-Wolf by George W. M. Reynolds• The Picture of Dorian Gray by Oscar Wilde• Varney the Vampire by Thomas Preskett PrestCurl up with The Penny Dreadfuls on a dark, moonless night and rediscover these chilling classics.
