Description

Demons, vengeful spirits, insanity, premature burials and lesbian vampires, In a Glass Darkly contains five diabolical tales of horror and mystery that will get the heart racing. Each story, including the famous 'Green Tea' and 'Carmilla', is presented as a case from the posthumous papers of Dr Martin Hesselius, a metaphysical physician who has no doubt as to the existence of supernatural phenomena - unlike our anxious protagonists... These traditional, yet unfamiliar tales were revered upon release, with Bram Stoker writing his own vampire story some twenty years later, and Henry James once suggesting that this is 'the ideal reading... for the hours after midnight'.

Professional reviews

"Whether you're new to Le Fanu's classic tales or a veteran of his particular brand of imaginative horror, these narrators are sure to entertain and spook you with these stories of stalking monkey-demons, supernatural courtroom revenge, premature burial, lesbian vampires, and more. Although it's not clear which reader performs which story, it's worth noting that all six are talented actors, making this a particularly impressive collection. Perhaps the most memorable stories presented are "The Familiar" and "Carmilla," both of which are iconic in their own right but are freshly imbued by their narrators. No over-the-top shenanigans here--these performers understand what creepiness is and how to share it. N.J.B. © AudioFile 2016, Portland, Maine"
