Genre icon Guillermo del Toro, whose love of classic terror tales from Poe, Lovecraft and other literary giants is well known (and has influenced many of his own works), has teamed up with literary giant Penguin Books to curate the “Penguin Horror” hardcover book series.   The Pacific Rim director personally selected titles from his favorite horror, science fiction and fantasy stories for the collection, which features the drop-dead amazing cover art shown here, rendered by artist & illustrator Paul Buckley and recently revealed by Entertainment Weekly.     “To learn what we fear is to learn who we are,” del Toro writes in the essay “Haunted Castles, Dark Mirrors: On the Penguin Horror Series,” which serves as an introduction to the collection.     The titles announced for the series include The Haunting of Hill House by Shirley Jackson, The Thing on the Doorstep and Other Weird Stories by H.P. Lovecraft, The Raven by Edgar Allan Poe, »
