Part of of the Centipede Press Gothics series. Jeckyll and Hyde is a short novel that divides into ten chapters, the last ow which uncovers the mysteries that have accrued through the previous nine. These stories, widely considered Stevenson's best horror short stories, were inspired by his laudanum-induced dreams and written twice within a six day period (the first set were thrown in the first after a fight with his wife, Fanny, over her concerns about the stories).
