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 immortalized Sweeney Todd, the demon-barber of Fleet Street; and the original 1918 edition of Frankenstein—as well as tales by Poe, Robert Louis Stevenson, Stoker, Alcott, and Conan Doyle.

No Varney the Vampyre? The tales within the book aren't bad, but don't you already have a copy of Frankenstein, Jekyll and Hyde, The Pit and the Pendulum? The real trouble is the misleading title. The majority of the works aren't penny dreadfuls at all. An okay but not great anthology.

I was actually surprised. There are some great stories in here. And the cover is beautiful!
