The original, classic, Dark Shadows books from the Paperback Library, return with Hermes Press' archival reprint of all 32 titles in the series beginning with the first novel which first saw print in December, 1966. The tenth book in this reprint series is titled 'The Phantom and Barnabas Collins.' Each book in the series was written by William Edward Daniel Ross who used the pen name Marilyn Ross. Maggie Evans visits the Collins family graveyard and is transported back in time to the year 1880. There she awakes, an amnesia victim at a Collinwood she barely recognizes. All that seems familiar are the house itself and the family's guest, Barnabas Collins. Slowly Maggie learns she is trapped in a nightmare. She has fallen into the hands of Dr. Giles Collins, whose mysterious experiments with human blood have already taken several lives. Now she is slated to be his next victim. Though Maggie is warned by the others that he is a vampire, she turns to Barnabas for help. But Barnabas, too, is in danger from the evil doctor. Will he live long enough to save her?
