"All of us know somehow that there is a Mr. Hyde and a Dr. Jekyll in us... There's a tension at the heart of human nature. And whenever we set out to dream our dreams and to build our temples, we must be honest enough to recognize it." -Martin Luther King, Jr.

"London lawyer Gabriel Utterson uncovers a strange and startling connection between his friend, the respectable doctor Henry Jekyll, and the sinister Edward Hyde. Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde is an arresting portrait of one man’s struggle with the human condition." -From Ben Palpant's Introduction

Something is amiss in the dark and grimy streets of London, and it's linked to the shifty and repulsive Mr. Hyde. Upon further investigation, it is discovered that the kindly and brilliant Dr. Jekyll is funding the exploits of this nighttime prowler, all the while growing more and more aloof. When Jekyll makes Hyde his heir, the doctor's friend Utterson knows that something is wrong—but he discovers that the truth is more terrible than anyone could have ever imagined.

"Bram Stoker’s 1897 Gothic novel, Dracula , features many of the most powerful tropes in fictional narrative: suspense,love, seduction, heroism, sacrifice, and the burning desire for some form of immortality." -From Grant Horner's Introduction

When the gorgeous Lucy Westenra mysteriously sickens, it’s up to Jonathan Harker and her other friends to figure out what’s preventing her recovery. Unfortunately, they take too long to realize that something dark has crossed the Channel and taken up residence in England. Even with the aid of the erudite Abraham Van Helsing and a number of sharp weapons, it may be too late even to save themselves, much less destroy the monstrous threat.

“Frankenstein impresses us with a high idea of the author's original genius and happy power of expression.” ~Sir Walter Scott

"Frankenstein, the genesis of the horror genre, began with friends
gathered around a campfire telling ghost stories. For a modern generation raised on Goosebumps it’s a little too good to be true." ~From Jake McAtee's Introduction

Dr. Frankenstein appears to embody the best of scientific knowledge. What could be more impressive than mastering chemistry and galvanism? But his fanatical experimentation exhibits the worst of human nature as well: pursuit of the divine at the expense of wisdom. Then the tables are turned, and Dr. Frankenstein tries to take life where he once gave it—for Dr. Frankenstein’s Monster lives. The guilty Dr. Frankenstein and his universally abhorred creation are bound together in a frantic search for happiness and a normal existence, but death seems to follow the Creature.
