This was the very first vampire thriller! Pure innocence becomes the target of age-old evil. Virtuous Laura has grown up in a solitary castle and longs for a close friend. Her wish seems granted with the arrival of a beautiful and mysterious stranger named Carmilla. A friendship develops but the brooding mood and sexual overtones mar Laura's happiness. Will she escape with her life and spirit?
The book about Le Fanu’s tortured, powerful female vampire, Carmilla, has been terrifying generations with its themes of lesbian attraction and forbidden, dangerous desires. Carmilla inspired Bram Stoker to create his own vampire classic 26 years later. Now, these two blood-chilling tales are brought together in this brilliant recording followed by a fascinating interview in which Hayward and Larkin talk about their process and reactions to the stories, straight from the London recording studio.
Award-winning narrator Alison Larkin gives thrilling voice to the elements of lesbian attraction and forbidden and dangerous desires in the story of Carmilla, the Gothic female vampire tale that inspired its more famous masculine counterpart Dracula.
Green Tea is the story of the Reverend Jennings, who consumes copious amounts of green tea while pursuing his esoteric interests late at night. When something goes wrong, he approaches Doctor Hesselius, who sets out the narrative in the form of a series of letters to another physician. He discusses the symptoms of the clergyman’s mysterious affliction, which torments him and interferes with his services. The illness appears to be mental rather than physical.
While on holiday in France, a young Englishman becomes obsessed with aiding a young countess to escape from her jealous, elderly husband. Ingenious and entertaining, Le Fanu combines Gothic horror with Victorian style in his elegant tale of passion, intrigue, and murder.
