Summary
"This reissue of Gaston Leroux's The Phantom of the Opera is the first title in The Haunted Library, a new horror classics series presented by the Horror Writers Association and Poisoned Pen Press, an imprint of Sourcebooks. The award-winning musical based on Leroux's work is world-famous, but many people are unaware that the show was inspired by a novel, originally published in a serialized form. The Phantom of the Opera is a timeless piece of gothic horror that invites the reader into the dark world of obsession beneath the Palais Garnier opera house and reveals the secrets of the masked man who lives there. An introduction by Bram Stoker Award-winning author Nancy Holder and in-depth annotations will bring this epic love story to life for today's readers"-- Provided by publisher.

Summary
"First published in 1897, Richard Marsh's classic work of gothic horror, The Beetle, opens with Robert Holt, an out-of-work clerk seeking shelter in an abandoned house. He comes face to face with a fantastical creature with supernatural and hypnotic powers; a creature who can transform at will between its human and beetle forms and who wrecks havoc when he preys on young middle-class Britons. Featuring an introduction by bestselling author Chelsea Quinn Yarbro, the Haunted Library Horror Classics edition of The Beetle is a tale of revenge that takes the reader on a dark journey, one that explores the crisis of late imperial England through a fantastical and horrific lens"-- Provided by publisher.

Summary
"Two friends, Tonnison and Berregnog, stumble upon an old house in rural Ireland and discover the journal of "the Recluse," an unidentified man who recorded his last days in the house before its destruction. The journal recounts strange visions that dogged the Recluse--terrifying creatures that crawl up from below the house to torment him. But the journal is unfinished, and the friends are left to speculate on the man's fate--and their own. First published in 1908 by William Hope Hodgson, The House on the Borderland is a classic Gothic novel that shaped the genre of horror into what it is today. Praised by iconic artists like H.P. Lovecraft and Terry Pratchett and presented now by the Horror Writers Association, this story is one that haunts the reader long after the book has been closed"-- Provided by publisher.
