If you’ve ever been a Ray Russell fan or simply enjoy reading Gothic stories, you’re gonna love this book. Haunted Castles: The Complete Gothic Stories contains three novellas of “Sardonicus,” “Sanguinarius,” and “Sagittarius.” That’s right, this is the complete collection of Ray Russell’s Gothic horror stories.
Each novella from the book represents a different character. You’ll discover the world of ” the heartless monster holding two lovers in limbo; the beautiful dame journeying down a damned road toward depravity (with the help of an evil gypsy); the man who must wear his fatal crimes on his face in the form of an awful smile.”
This remarkable author is probably best known for his horror stories. In fact, Stephen King described Sardonicus as “perhaps the finest example of the modern Gothic ever written.” As for the foreword, it was written by a filmmaker Guillermo del Toro. He did it for the entire Penguin Classics horror collection.
