Body snatching! Premature burial! Cannibalism!

The original Victorian-era penny dreadfuls entertained the masses with shocks, thrills and lurid horrors. This terror-packed anthology includes two novels - The String of Pearls, which immortalised Sweeney Todd, the Demon Barber of Fleet Street, and the original 1818 edition of Mary Shelley's Frankenstein - as well as tales by Edgar Allen Poe, Robert Louis Stevenson, Bram Stoker, Alcott and Sir Arthur Conan Doyle.
