Overview
Part of a new six-volume series of the best in classic horror, selected by award-winning director Guillermo del Toro

Filmmaker and longtime horror literature fan Guillermo del Toro serves as the curator for the Penguin Horror series, a new collection of classic tales and poems by masters of the genre. Included here are some of del Toro s favorites, from Mary Shelley s Frankenstein and Ray Russell s short story Sardonicus, considered by Stephen King to be perhaps the finest example of the modern Gothic ever written, to Shirley Jackson s The Haunting of Hill House and stories by Ray Bradbury, Joyce Carol Oates, Ted Klein, and Robert E. Howard. Featuring original cover art by Penguin Art Director Paul Buckley, these stunningly creepy deluxe hardcovers will be perfect additions to the shelves of horror, sci-fi, fantasy, and paranormal aficionados everywhere.
The Thing on the Doorstep and Other Weird Stories
Howard Phillips Lovecraft's unique contribution to American literature was a melding of traditional supernaturalism (derived chiefly from Edgar Allan Poe) with the genre of science fiction that emerged in the early 1920s.The Thing on the Doorstep and Other Weird Storiesbrings together a dozen of the master's tales from his early short stories "Under the Pyramids" (originally ghostwritten for Harry Houdini) and The Music of Erich Zann (which Lovecraft ranked second among his own favorites) through his more fully developed works, The Dunwich Horror, The Case of Charles Dexter Ward, and At the Mountains of Madness. The book presents the definitive corrected texts of these works, along with Lovecraft critic and biographer S. T. Joshi's illuminating introduction and notes to each story."
