More About This Book

Overview

The Horror Collection features four titles for an incredible value! Each bone-chilling title in the series presents a classic work in an attractively designed edition bound in genuine bonded leather. These books make elegant, eye-catching additions to any home library. The collection includes:

  • Anne Rice's The Vampire Chronicles
  • The Complete Tales and Poems of Edgar Allan Poe
  • Gregory Maguire's Wicked and Son of a Witch
  • H.P. Lovecraft: The Complete Fiction
The hypnotic, deeply seductive novels of Anne Rice have captivated millions of fans around the world. Now, in one chilling volume, here are the first three classic novels of The Vampire Chronicles. In Interview with the Vampire, witness the confessions of a vampire. A novel of mesmerizing beauty and astonishing force, it is a story of danger and flight, love and loss, suspense and resolution, and the extraordinary power of the senses. The Vampire Lestat focuses on Lestat, who was once an aristocrat from pre-revolutionary France, but now a rock star in the decadent 1980s. Lestat rushes through the centuries seeking to fathom the mystery of his existence. In Queen of the Damned, Akasha, the Queen of the Damned, has risen from a six-thousand-year sleep to let loose the powers of the night. She has a marvelously devious plan to "save" mankind—in this vivid novel of the erotic, electrifying world of the undead.

Edgar Allan Poe is credited with having pioneered the short story, having perfected the tale of psychological horror, and having revolutionized modern poetics. The entirety of Poe's body of imaginative work encompasses detective tales, satires, fables, fantasies, science fiction, verse dramas, and some of the most evocative poetry in the English language. This leatherbound omnibus collects all of Poe's fiction and poetry in a single volume, including "The Fall of the House of Usher," "The Tell-Tale Heart," "The Pit and the Pendulum," "The Raven," "Annabel Lee," the full-length novel The Narrative of Arthur Gordon Pym of Nantucket, and much more.

This unique volume combines two modern classics spun from the imagination of national bestselling author Gregory Maguire. Wicked, told from the perspective of Elphaba Thropp, the Wicked Witch of the West, gives the wildly entertaining prehistory of the Emerald City of Oz before the arrival of Dorothy, the Scarecrow, the Cowardly Lion, and the Tin Woodsman. The saga continues in Son of a Witch, the whimsical coming-of-age story of Liir, the Wicked Witch's secret son. Beautifully designed and illustrated, this volume makes the perfect gift for lovers of modern fantasy literature.

In the 1920s and '30s, H.P. Lovecraft pioneered a new type of weird fiction that fused elements of supernatural horror with the concepts of visionary science fiction. Lovecraft's tales of cosmic horror revolutionized modern horror fiction and earned him the reputation of the most influential American writer of weird tales since Edgar Allan Poe. H.P. Lovecraft: The Complete Fiction collects for the first time in a single volume all of Lovecraft's groundbreaking fiction: "The Call of Cthulhu," "The Dreams in the Witch House," "The Haunter of the Dark," "At the Mountains of Madness," "The Shadow out of Time," "The Shadow over Innsmouth," the full-length novels the Case of Charles Dexter Ward and The Dream Quest of Unknown Kadath, and many others.
