'The Picture of Dorian Gray'

'Oh, if it were only the other way! If the picture could change, and I could be always what I am now!'

The Picture of Dorian Gray is the only published novel by Oscar Wilde, appearing as the lead story in Lippincott's Monthly Magazine on 20 June 1890, printed as the July 1890 issue. The magazine's editors feared the story was indecent as submitted, so they censored roughly 500 words, without Wilde's knowledge, before publication. But even with that, the story was still greeted with outrage by British reviewers, some of whom suggested that Wilde should be prosecuted on moral grounds, leading Wilde to defend the novel aggressively in letters to the British press.

Today, Wilde's fin de siècle novella is considered a classic. It is presented here with illustrations by Aubrey Beardsley, Wilde's one time friend with whom he fell out over 'Salome.' The illustrations include a caricature of Wilde by Beardsley as well as a high definition copy of the original Lipincott's Magazine cover from July, 1890.

'Vileroy or The Horrors of Zindorf Castle'

This epic, gripping thriller from Thomas Peckett Prest, the creator of Sweeney Todd is available in a beautifully formatted e-book for the very first time. 'Zindorff' was a wildly popular serial in the 1850s, outselling works by Dickens and Thackeray, but has now largely been forgotten. All the tropes of the early penny dreadful are here: a quintessential Gothic romance, replete with incidents of physical and psychological terror; remote, crumbling castles; seemingly supernatural events; a brooding, scheming villain; and a persecuted heroine.

'Jack Harkaway and his Son's Adventures in Australia'

"For a regular thriller commend me to 'Jack Harkaway.' " - Horatio Alger

Jack Harkaway first appeared in the penny magazine Boys of England in 1871 and was an instant hit. The Harkaway titles – which came out in penny parts as well as magazines – were pirated in America and by 1872 the character created by writer Bracebridge Hemyng had become a household name around the world. Young men loved reading about globe-trotting adventurer Jack Harkaway’s shenanigans in stories like ‘Jack Harkaway Afloat and Ashore,’ ‘Jack Harkaway in America and Cuba,’ 'Jack Harkaway at Oxford' and ‘Jack Harkaway’s Adventures in China.’ There were fifteen stories in all and for a decade the world was enthralled. Now largely forgotten and long since out of print, the Penny Dreadful Series is introducing Jack Harkaway and his son to a new generation of readers. Here in e-book format for the first time is Jack’s 13th adventure, ‘Jack Harkaway and his Son’s Adventures in Australia.’

'Dracula's Guest'

This short story by Bram Stoker, the creator of Dracula, was published posthumously by Stoker's widow in 1914, two year's after the author's death and is a must read for any vampire aficionado.

Awesome illustrations and brilliantly written! This is probably one of the best deals on kindle. The work of Oscar Wilde is timeless and classic. I was so absorbed in the text that it didn't even take me a week to finish all three novels. EXCELLENT Series!

Book 2 in the series and it is every bit as good as the first. The publisher has once again brought some old classics to life and with extras galore. This collection contains the 'didn't know it even existed' Dracula's Guest, pretty much the first chapter of Dracula that was cut from the novel due to word limits. Babeee :D Grab a copy and enjoy this wonderful collection of stories that are classics in their own right and classically collected in this one, wonderful edition.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 An Amazing Deal too Good to Pass Up!!! 28 janvier 2014

This is a superb anthology. I have read the enduring and brilliantly written classic Picture of Dorian Gray before, but it was cool to see the Aubrey Beardsley illustrations. I’d give four stars to ‘The Horrors of Zindorf Castle.’ I haven’t finished the Jack Harkaway book but it’s fun so far. The essay describing Penny Dreadfuls was fascinating. I’d never read the Bram Stoker short story. There’s a lot here for just $1.99. Four books and almost a thousand pages. An amazing deal. Run-do not walk to one click it!!!

Wow...what an incredible value-packed set of books. "Penny Dreadful Multipack Vol. 2" starts off with a bang with the story of Dorian Gray by Author Oscar Wilde. Dorian is posing for a painting and has become all-consuming to artist Basil Hallward as he states "I couldn't be happy if I didn't see him everyday. He is absolutely necessary to me." In saying so, Basil definitely piques the interest of Lord Henry who now is quite eager to meet this extraordinary young man. Dorian Gray with his "simple and beautiful nature" manages to become Basil's dearest friend...and the tale of Dorian Gray ensues.

The second offering in this set is "Vileroy or The Horrors of Zindorf Castle". Caroline Mecklenburgh breathes a sigh of relief as she realizes that the castle turret is empty and Claudio is safe, at least for now. The baron refuses to offer his consent for Carolyn to marry Count Durlack. He definitely has other plans as the baron rushes her along the maze of castle corridors towards the castle chapel...

The story of "Jack Harkway and His Sons-Adventures in Australia" further adds to the array of tales by this group of talented authors. Hunston stands upon the beach in the state of dreadful shock and solitude as the boat "Westward Ho!" pulls away from shore and disappears from his line of vision. Hunston is destined to face many adventures. However, the boat and the crew now anchored in Sydney Cove, where many other adventures are about to begin, includes the nefarious character Captain Morgan..."a rover, a bushranger and bandit". There's a price on his head...and a story to unfold.

Also included in this set of books are the Bonus Features about the story of Dracula, an explanation for the English term "penny dreadful"...the American version of the dime novel, as well as a possible answer to "who wrote Vileroy". There is plenty of great reading in this Multipack for those who enjoy classical books!
