A scientist oversteps the bounds of conscience and brings to life a tortured creation. A young adventurer succumbs to the night world of a diabolic count. A man of medicine explores his darker side only to fall prey to it. They are the legendary tales that have held readers spellbound for more than a century. The titles alone - Frankenstein, Dracula, and Dr. Jeckyll and Mr. Hyde - have become part of a universal language that serves to put a monster's face on the good-and-evil duality of a very human nature. And the authors - Mary Shelley, Bram Stiker, and Robert Louis Stevenson - equally as mythic, are still possessed of an inventive and subversive power that can shake a reader to this day with something far more profound than fear. They gave root to the modern horror novel, and like the creatures they invented, they've achieved immortality.
