The Strange Case of Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde and Other Stories Robert Louis Stevenson's riveting novella of a terrifying split personality has already inspired more than 120 film adaptations.

In addition, it includes lesser known tales and his most beloved poems, including "Annabel Lee," "The Raven," and "The Bells."
Dracula From the account of Jonathan Harker's arrival at Count Dracula's Transylvanian castle to Lucy's vampiric transformation, Bram Stoker's classic story of the return of the dead has served as the model for hundreds of adaptations.
