Some brief overview of book

Mary Shelleys classic tale of the devastating consequences of playing God joins the SF Masterworks list. Brilliant, driven Victor Frankenstein has at last realised his greatest ambition. The scientist has succeeded in creating intelligent life.

But when his creature first stirs, Frankenstein realises he has made a monster. And, abandoned by its maker and shunned by everyone who sees it, the Doctors creation sets out to destroy him and all that he holds dear. Mary Shelleys Frankenstein remains one of the greatest horror stories ever written, a book that chillingly captures the unforeseen terror of playing God.

And the heart-stopping fear of being pursued by a powerful, relentless killer. 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

About book author

Wollstonecraft Godwin was born August 30, 1797, in London, England. Her parents were both writers but sadly, her mother died while Mary was a baby. After being homeschooled as a child, Mary fell in love at a young age.

At 16, she married Percy Shelley and changed her name to Mary Shelley. In 1816, the couple traveled to Switzerland for the summer. While there, Shelley and other writers decided to have a ghost story contest.

Shelley started writing Frankenstein. Published in 1818, the novtein remains one of the greatest horror stories ever written, a book that chillingly captures the unforeseen terror of playing God. And the heart-stopping fear of being pursued by a powerful, relentless killer.
