"He put the glass to his lips and drank at one gulp. A cry followed; he reeled, staggered, clutched at the table and held on, staring with injected eyes, gasping with open mouth; and as I looked there came, I thought, a change - he seemed to swell - his face became suddenly black and the features seemed to melt and alter - and the next moment, I had sprung to my feet and leaped back against the wall, my arms raised to shield me from that prodigy, my mind submerged in terror."

Strange Case of Dr Jekyll and Mr Hyde is perhaps one of the best known horror stories of the 19th century. Author Robert Louis Stevenson was inspired to write this novel after a feverish dream which led him to three days of frantic writing. The result is a spine chilling tale which speaks to the inner duality of human kind as much today as it did when it was first written.
