In Conrad's haunting tale, Marlow, a seaman and wanderer, recounts his physical and psychological journey in search of the enigmatic Kurtz. Travelling to the heart of the African continent, he discovers how Kurtz has gained his position of power and influence over the local people.

"Serialized in Blackwood's Edinburgh Magazine during the period 1398-1902, 'Youth', leant of Darkness' and 'The h.I of the Tether' make up the contents of Conrad's most celebrated collection of short narratives, first published in a single volume in 1902. 'Heart of Darkness' forms its sombre centrepiece: set in the Congo of the 1890s, this haunting and widely influential Modernist masterpiece explores the limits of human experience as well as the nightmarish realities and consequences of imperialism." "The 'Introduction' situates the stories within the context of Conrad's relationship with the Blackwood publishing firm, traces their sources, lays out the evolution of the volume and surveys its subsequent reception. The 'Explanatory Notes' elucidate literary, historical and geographical references, and supply other contextual materials, A glossary of nautical terms further enriches the explanatory matter, as do maps and illustrations. 'Ube essay on the texts in combination with the comprehensive apparatus lays out the history of each story's composition, revision and publication, detailing interventions in the text by Conrad's typists, compositors and editors." "Based upon a painstaking comparison of preprint documents, serials and subsequent hook versions printed during Conrad's lifetime, the Cambridge Edition presents this trio of stories and their preface in forms more authoritative than any so far published. Errors introduced by typists and early publishers have been repaired and Conrad's own preferred forms recovered; the texts are freed from successive layers of non-authorial intervention; and the impress of magazine house-styles has been bypassed or significantly ameliorated in order to recover the writer's sparer, more expressive punctuation."

One of the most daunting ghost stories to ever be written, Henry James' Turn of the Screw follows the transformation of Miles (age 10) and Flora (age 8) from well behaved children to deceitful liars. When a governess comes to their country estate to look after the children, she and Flora are separately visited by ghost; however Flora denies the experience and Miles claims to never have been visited by one, even when evidence supports an evil plot between the children and the ghosts. Devoid of common ghost story stereotypes, this timeless story is full of suspense, supernatural phenomenon, and thrills to frighten and delight any listener
