Our Autumn list is rounded out by two new volumes in our popular Pocket Classics range, a selection of Stories of Art and Artists, and John Updike's Olinger Stories.
THE HOUND OF THE BASKERVILLES, A STUDY IN SCARLET, THE SIGN OF FOUR
Arthur Conan Doyle
Introduced by Andrew Lycett
. . .often regarded as the perfect Sherlock Holmes package, combining absorbing detective work, astute social observation, and blood-tingling horror. . .In fact Holmes is extraordinarily romantic. The Canon has its dark moments. . .But its overall effect remains undeniably uplifting - ANDREW LYCETT
Introduced by John Sutherland
'A true story, a murder story, a love story and a thriller bursting with humour, sex and often dazzling language' - INDEPENDENT
'Martin Amis is the most original prose stylist of his generation.' - DAVID LODGE
STORIES OF ART AND ARTISTS
Selected by Diana Secker Tesdell
'Honore de Balsac, Hermann Hesse, Franz Kafka, Marguerite Yourcenar, John Berger, William Boyd, Valerie Martin. . .Their dazzling literary evocations of the visual arts - using one art form to reflect on another - make Stories of Art and Artists an irresistible gift for lovers of art of all kinds'
Foreword by John Updike
Updike considered this his signature collection, one that communicated his freshest impressions of life in Berks County, Pennsylvania in the 1930s and '40s.
These autobiographical stories about growing up in small-town Pennsylvania are among John Updike's best, and were the closest to his heart.
POEMS DEAD AND UNDEAD
Selected by Tony Barnstone and Michelle Mitchell-Foust
'This uniquely wide-ranging collection of poems from across the ages and around the world brings to life a staggering, blood-curdling array of zombies, ghosts, vampires, devils and demons.'
'A delightfully entertaining volume of spine-tingling poems for fans of horror and poetry both.'

EVERYMAN'S BOOK OF THE MONTH
Written by Bram Stoker
There's a brilliant new exhibition at the British Library this month, called 'Terror and Wonder: the Gothic Imagination'. It traces two-and-a-half centuries of the Gothic tradition, from Walpole's The Castle of Otranto to Shelley's Frankenstein, and is definitely worth a visit if you are in London. And so in further celebration of the Gothic tradition, and with Halloween just around the corner, we've chosen Bram Stoker's Dracula as October's Book of the Month.
The most famous vampire story ever written, Bram Stoker's Dracula (1897) has enthralled generations of readers as completely as Count Dracula enthrals his victims.
'In seeking a parallel to this weird, powerful, and horrorful story our mind reverts to such tales as The Mysteries of Udolpho, Frankenstein, The Fall of the House of Usher ... but Dracula is even more appalling in its gloomy fascination than any one of these.'
