Guillermo del Toro’s love for classic horror is no secret, and he’s taken that love to the next level with the help of Penguin Classics. Tomorrow (September 24th), Penguin is releasing a hardcover set of del Toro’s favorite classic horror stories, as curated by the director himself.
“To learn what we fear is to learn who we are,” del Toro wrote in his series introduction, an essay titled “Haunted Castles, Dark Mirrors: On the Penguin Horror Series”. I love hearing del Toro talk about pretty much anything, his passion for the subject matter is unparalleled, and these are some of the best stories the genre has ever seen. Check out Paul Buckley’s awesome cover art below.
The series includes: The Haunting of Hill House by Shirley Jackson, The Thing on the Doorstep and Other Weird Stories by H.P. Lovecraft, The Raven by Edgar Allan Poe, Haunted Castles by Ray Russell, Frankenstein by Mary Shelley and American Supernatural Tales with stories by Stephen King, Shirley Jackson and more.
