Description


Over Two Dozen Shuddersom Classics. These that inspired Machen, Blackwood, Lovecraft, Bloch, Lieber, King, and other masters of the terror tale. LeFanu (1814-17) is famed as one of the creators of the horror story. His early novel of a female vampire, "Carmilla" (included in this anthology), is one of the inspirations for Bram Stoker's Dracula, and has been filmed at least four times under various names. Also included in this shivers-producing omnibus are LeFanu's most famous stories, such as "Schalken the Painter," "Dickon the Devil," "The Evil Guest," and "The Dead Sexton, along with less frequently reprinted masterpieces as "An Account of Some Strange Disturbances in Aungier Street," "An Authentic Narrative of a Haunted House," "The Haunted Baronet," "The Mysterious Lodger," "Laura Silver Bell," "Wicket Captain Walshaw, of Wauling," "The Banshee," "A Chapter in the History of a Tyrone Family," and "The Murdered Cousin." Plus many many others. In hardcover this gigantic horror collection would total over 1600 pages of ghastly, ghostly tales. Buy it now and prepare yourself for nights of terrifying reading pleasure.
