Written by Robert Louis Stevenson
Dr Jekyll has discovered the ultimate drug. A chemical that can turn him into something else. Suddenly, he can unleash his cruelties in the guise of the sinister Hyde.

The other stories in this volume also testify to Stevenson's inventiveness within the gothic genre: "Olalla", a tale of vampirism and tainted family blood, and "The Body Snatcher", which shows the murky underside of medical practice.
