Some brief overview of book

Includes The Yellow Sign, the most horrific story from The King in Yellow, the classic horror collection by Robert W. Chambers featured on HBOs hit TV series True Detective. American Supernatural Tales is the ultimate collection of weird and frightening American short fiction.

As Stephen King will attest, the popularity of the occult in American literature has only grown since the days of Edgar Allan Poe. The book celebrates the richness of this tradition with chilling contributions from some of the nations brightest literary lights, including Poe himself, H. P.

Lovecraft, Shirley Jackson, Ray Bradbury, Nathaniel Hawthorne, andof courseStephen King. By turns phantasmagoric, spectral, and demonic, this is a frighteningly good collection of stories. 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 Toros favorites, from Mary Shelleys Frankenstein and Ray Russells short story "Sardonicus," considered by Stephen King to be "perhaps the finest example of the modern Gothic ever written," to Shirley Jacksons 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.

Dear B&N customer, Im very pleased to share with you, Penguin Horror, a series I have curated that features canonical works by authors who have been formative to my life as a reader and who have inspired my creative and artistic endeavors through my whole career. For me, a lifelong passion for classic horror began partly with reading Penguin Books in English, and one of my earliest loves, Frankenstein by Mary Shelley, the purest of parables, brought a sense of familiarity and comfort to an awkward adolescent boy growing up in Mexico, who felt, in some sense, a bond with the Creature himself. The discovery of the horror tale as a young child was fortuitous and, in many ways, it served the same purpose as fairy tales did in my childhood.

Internal conflicts are externalized and played out as we enter the worlds written by Mary Shelley or Edgar Allan Poe or H. P. Lovecraft in a similar manner that they are when we read the Grimms or Hans Christian Andersen or Oscar Wilde.

These tales allow us to articulate our anxieties and fears in absolute safety. And, just as the fairy tale, the horror tale can serve as both a liberating or repressive social tool, and remains always an accurate mirror to the social climate of its time. These works of literature collected here in Penguin Horror by masters of the genre including perennial favorites like Mary Shelley, Shirley Jackson, H.

P. Lovecraft, Edgar Allan Poe, and an author that I trust will be a revelation to new generations of horror lovers Ray Russell. These titles go hand-in-hand with a collection of classic supernatural short stories from Ray Bradbury, Stephen King, Joyce Carol Oates and many others, selected by a true scholar of the Genre S.

T. Joshi. This collection provides new readers with an opportunity to inhabit the haunted castles of our minds, and to look deeply into those dark mirrors that reflect all that we fear.

For to learn what we fear is to learn who we are. Sincerely, Guillermo del Toro
