The Gothic Horror Collection - The fog shrouded castle, the sound of clanking chains, old secrets unveiled, and unspeakable evil lurking - these are the hallmarks of the Gothic horror genre, and no where are they better displayed than in The Gothic Horror Collection. This collection includes the classics of the genre:
• The Castle of Otranto
• The Monk
• The Mysteries of Udolpho
• Northanger Abbey
• The History of the Caliph Vathek
• The Romance of the Forest
• The Italian
• Uncle Silas
• Melmoth the Wanderer
Beginning with the publication of Horace Walpole's "The Castle of Otranto" in 1764, the gothic horror genre reached a fever pitch in late 18th and early 19th century England with Ann Radcliffe's "The Mysteries of Udolpho" in 1794 and "The Italian in 1797, Matthew Lewis's "The Monk" in 1796, Jane Austen's "Northanger Abbey" in 1817, Mary Shelley's "Frankenstein" in 1818, and Charles Maturin's "Melmoth the Wanderer" in 1820. The gothic horror tradition - terror, mystery, the supernatural, darkness, death, madness and secrets - continues today with such writers as Stephen King and Anne Rice.
