Carmilla by J. Sheridan Le Fanu
Tradepaperback – Valancourt Books – 2015 reprint of an 1872 title.
Following a near-fatal carriage collision, Carmilla is taken in by Laura and her father. The two young women become strangely attracted to each other, but there seems to be more to Carmilla than meets the eye. After her arrival in the village, local peasants begin to die and Laura falls ill and languishes. What is Carmilla’s true identity, and can she be to blame?
A thrilling tale of horror and mystery and a major influence on Bram Stoker’s DRACULA, Carmilla remains on of Le Fanu’s most enduring works.
