Penguin has recently released a series of 10 works of classic 'Gothic Red' literature with covers as wicked as the words inside. Featuring the fiction of Edgar Allen Poe, Bram Stroker, H.P. Lovecraft among other masters of the macabre, these books are a fantastic blend of grisly nightmares and great design.
To read a taste of Poe's gothic horror go to Penguin's taster's page and you can download a free pdf version of the haunting short tale, "The Tell-Tale Heart."
