The Strange Case of Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde 
by Robert Louis Stevenson
The House on the Borderland 
by William Hope Hodgson 
The Willows 
by Algernon Blackwood
...has inspired analysis from a multiplicity of points-of-view, variously lauding it as a classic case study of good and evil, an examination of 19th century morals and psychological states, an inquiry into the essence of personality, personality disorder, and the nature of addiction. Of the work Stevenson himself said: I send you herewith a Gothic gnome, interesting I think, and he came out of a deep mine, where he guards the fountain of tears. And elsewhere: Jekyll is a dreadful thing, I own, but the only thing I feel dreadful about is this damned old business of the war in the members. This time it came out; I hope it will stay in, in future.

A novel of supernatural horror penned by British fantasist William Hope Hodgson, read by Wayne June. 
This classic novel is heralded as the turning point between gothic supernatural fiction of the late 19th century and modern horror fiction. 
Hodgson's more scientific/cosmic horror had a profound influence in the development of weird tales of the middle of the 20th century as evidenced by the fact that noted American horror writer H. P. Lovecraft lists Hodgson among his greatest influences
The Willows is one of Algernon Blackwood's best known short stories. American horror author H.P. Lovecraft considered it to be the finest supernatural tale in English literature. The Willows is an example of early modern horror and is connected with the literary tradition of weird fiction.
