Description

Muriel's Bookshelf presents our first classic horror collection, a mix of unfairly forgotten and deservedly celebrated classic works. Here is the full list, along with our favorite quote form each:

Frankenstein; Or, The Modern Prometheus by Mary Wollstonecraft Shelley
"If I cannot inspire love, I will cause fear!"

Dracula by Bram Stoker

"Doctor, you don't know what it is to doubt everything, even yourself. No, you don't; you couldn't with eyebrows like yours."

The Strange Case of Dr. Jekyll And Mr. Hyde by Robert Louis Stevenson

"Jekyll had more than a father's interest; Hyde had more than a son's indifference."

The Vampyre by John William Polidori

"He thought, in fine, that the dreams of poets were the realities of life."

The King in Yellow by Robert W. Chambers

"Ah," she said, "to come is easy and takes hours; to go is different -- and may take centuries."

Carmilla by Joseph Sheridan Le Fanu

"You must come with me, loving me, to death; or else hate me, and still come with me."

The Castle of Otranto by Horace Walpole

"There is no bombast, no similes, flowers, digressions, or unnecessary descriptions. Everything tends directly to the catastrophe."

The Turn of The Screw by Henry James

"Make (the reader) think the evil, make him think it for himself, and you are released from weak specifications. My values are positively all blanks, save so far as an excited horror, a promoted pity, a created expertness... proceed to read into them more or less fantastic figures."

An Occurrence at Owl Creek Bridge by Ambrose Bierce

"He had power only to feel, and feeling was torment."

The Dunwich Horror by Howard Phillips Lovecraft

"Two centuries ago, when talk of witch-blood, Satan-worship, and strange forest presences was not laughed at, it was the custom to give reasons for avoiding the locality. In our sensible age -- since the Dunwich horror of 1928 was hushed up by those who had the town's and the world's welfare at heart -- people shun it without knowing exactly why."

The Wendigo by Algernon Blackwood

"Like many another materialist, that is, he lied cleverly on the basis of insufficient knowledge, because the knowledge supplied seemed to his own particular intelligence inadmissible."

The Narrative of Arthur Gordon Pym. Of Nantucket by Edgar Allan Poe

"- a narrative, let me here say, which, in its latter portions, will be found to include incidents of a nature so entirely out of the range of human experience, and for this reason so far beyond the limits of human credulity, that I proceed in utter hopelessness of obtaining credence for all that I shall tell, yet confidently trusting in time and progressing science to verify some of the most important and most improbable of my statements."

The Raven by Edgar Allan Poe

"Be that word our sign of parting, bird or fiend!" I shrieked, upstarting --
"Get thee back into the tempest and the Night's Plutonian shore!
Leave no black plume as a token of that lie thy soul hath spoken!
Leave my loneliness unbroken! -- quit the bust above my door!
Take thy beak from out my heart, and take thy form from off my door!"
Quoth the raven, "Nevermore."
