Filmmaker Guillermo del Toro has assisted with the Halloween-perfect makeover of six classic stories and poems.
The “Penguin Horror” series features original cover art by Paul Buckley. Each hardcover costs between $22 and $25. Del Toro serves as editor for each book. Did I mention these are awesome?
They kind of remind me of the Barnes & Noble series of classics — those really cool hardcovers you see in the stores. The colors and designs are great for decorating your bookshelf this time of year. Attach some cobwebs and fake spiders and … done!
The volumes reprint American Supernatural Tales by S.T. Joshi, Frankenstein by Mary Shelley, Haunted Castles by Ray Russell, The Haunting of Hill House by Shirley Jackson, The Raven by Edgar Allan Poe, and The Thing on the Doorstep and Other Weird Stories by H.P. Lovecraft.
Paperback and e-book versions are available for as little as $13, but obviously, these are collector’s items. Digital just won’t cut it.
