About this Item

Paperback. 356 pages. Dimensions: 8.5in. x 5.5in. x 1.0in.Thirteen strange stories from the genius of Robert Louis Stevenson There are very few readers who need an introduction to the works of Scottish author Robert Louis Stevenson, many of his tales have become enduring classics and are familiar to practically everyone in either the written word or as films, plays, television serials and even as radio programmes. Many of Stevensons books, such as Treasure Island, Kidnapped and The Black Arrow are iconic and genre defining works of fiction. The reason for this fact is simply that great writers create great works. Stevensons forays into the worlds of supernatural, weird and horror fiction were, unfortunately, not so many compared with a number of his contemporaries, but and thirteen of his tales in these genres-arguably the entire canon-have been gathered together in this special single volume Leonaur edition. We believe that what might be lacking here in terms of quantity is more than balanced by the indisputable quality of Stevensons writing skills. This collection contains one of the authors most iconic and much filmed work, the novella The Strange Case of Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde-a work of such influence that its title alone has entered the English language as a readily understood synonym for schizophrenic or aberrant behaviour. Readers will also discover here Thrawn Janet, The Waif Woman, Olalla, The Body Snatcher, The Isle of Voices, The Poor Thing and other superbly crafted tales to relish and disturb. A must for every collector and enthusiast of the fiction of the ghostly, bizarre and macabre. Leonaur editions are newly typeset and are not facsimiles; each title is available in softcover and hardback with dustjacket; our hardbacks are cloth bound and feature gold foil lettering on their spines and fabric head and tail bands. This item ships from multiple locations. Your book may arrive from Roseburg,OR, La Vergne,TN. Bookseller Inventory # 9781782820055

About this title

Synopsis:

Thirteen strange stories from the genius of Robert Louis Stevenson

There are very few readers who need an introduction to the works of Scottish author Robert Louis Stevenson, many of his tales have become enduring classics and are familiar to practically everyone in either the written word or as films, plays, television serials and even as radio programmes. Many of Stevenson's books, such as 'Treasure Island,' 'Kidnapped' and 'The Black Arrow' are iconic and genre defining works of fiction. The reason for this fact is simply that great writers create great works. Stevenson's forays into the worlds of supernatural, weird and horror fiction were, unfortunately, not so many compared with a number of his contemporaries, but and thirteen of his tales in these genres-arguably the entire canon-have been gathered together in this special single volume Leonaur edition. We believe that what might be lacking here in terms of quantity is more than balanced by the indisputable quality of Stevenson's writing skills. This collection contains one of the author's most iconic and much filmed work, the novella 'The Strange Case of Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde'-a work of such influence that its title alone has entered the English language as a readily understood synonym for schizophrenic or aberrant behaviour. Readers will also discover here 'Thrawn Janet,' 'The Waif Woman,' 'Olalla,' 'The Body Snatcher,' 'The Isle of Voices,' 'The Poor Thing' and other superbly crafted tales to relish and disturb. A must for every collector and enthusiast of the fiction of the ghostly, bizarre and macabre.
