Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde and Other Stories of the Supernatural By Robert Louis Stevenson

  • Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde – What happens when Doctor Henry Jekyll, an up and coming, somewhat well known scientist, turns his scientific curiosities towards the true nature of man? He’s about to find out, and though it might delight his scientific mind at first, his experiments bring Danger to his very doorstep.
    Edward Hyde, on the other hand, fears not the specter of Danger, and in fact, revels in it, and Blood-lust, and Pain. Addicted to the natural high of violence, Hyde shows no signs of halting his bad behavior, nor returning to his slumbering ways.
  • The Bottle Imp – Keawe, a Hawaiian Native, traveling one day, discovers a man with a strange fortune in the form of a bottle. Keawe’s curiosity gets the better of him, and as the tale of the bottle and it’s leads to fortune are explained to him, he was wiser to trust his first doubts then to do as he did, but the deed is done, and now come the consequences. After all, it is only a bottle, what harm could a bottle do…?
  • Markheim – A Clock-dealer, Christmas, and a horrible, horrible driving force lead Markheim to an act of violence, will he be caught? Can he be saved from himself?
  • The Body-Snatcher – Medicine hasn’t ever had a pristine start, But what Two Medical Students do to further knowledge weights heavily on their consciences. Until they forget their involvement at least, but then, who knows, maybe their past will come back to haunt them.
