The Haunting of Hill House


I started reading this today - the Penguin Horror printing of Shirley Jackson's The Haunting of Hell House. This hardcover book really is a beast of an edition and has a distinct graphic design in orange, black and white, with glossy black highlights on the trees, crows, grass and eye. There is no dust jacket (which was a slight disappointment).

The edition has an in depth introduction by Guillermo Del Toro. The book is tightly bound, the covers resisting the actual opening of the book. But open it must. It is time for me to crack for me crack its spine and read a good old-fashioned haunted house story...
