Haunted Castles: The Complete Gothic Stories

Haunted Castles: The Complete Gothic Stories

Ray Russell


Horror legend Ray Russell’s haunting and macabre tales, together with “perhaps the best instance of the trendy Gothic ever written” (Stephen King), with a foreword by means of acclaimed filmmaker Guillermo del Toro
 
Haunted Castles is the definitive, whole selection of Ray Russell’s masterful Gothic horror tales, together with the famously terrifying novella trio of “Sardonicus,” “Sanguinarius,” and “Sagittarius.” The characters that sprawl through Haunted Castles are frightful to the center: the heartless monster keeping fans in limbo; the gorgeous dame touring down a damned highway towards depravity (with the aid of an evil gypsy); the guy who needs to put on his deadly crimes on his face within the kind of an lousy smile. Engrossing, ugly, and fully entrancing, Russell’s Gothic stories are the simplest type of dreadful.
