Sheridan Le Fanu
Carmilla - Sheridan Le Fanu7.70

A chilling tale of the un-dead, Carmilla is a beautifully written example of the gothic genre. The story takes the reader into the dark, mysterious world of a girl and her family tormented by visitations and nightmares. While the continual reoccurrence of a beautiful woman, unknown, yet familiar, meanders through the lives of the characters, to the very heart of the story, the precise use of language emphasises and heightens the images that the book presents and sends the reader spiralling towards its bloody conclusion.

Believed to be the inspiration for Bram Stoker's gothic masterpiece Dracula, Carmilla stands out as a classic horror masterpiece.
