"In a Glass Darkly", which was first published in 1872, collects together five classic gothic horror and mystery short stories by J. Sheridan Le Fanu. In "Green Tea" we have the story of Jennings, a clergyman who believes he is being followed by a demon in the form of a monkey. In "The Familiar" we have the tale of a sea captain who is stalked by 'the watcher'. "Mr. Justice Harbottle", the third installment of the work, relates the plight of Elijah Harbottle, who finds himself under attack by vengeful spirits. "The Room in the Dragon Volant" tells of a naive young Englishman in France who attempts to save a mysterious countess from her intolerable situation. And finally in "Carmilla" Le Fanu crafts a tale of a female vampire. Fans of gothic and horror stories will delight in this classic collection from one of the greatest writers of the genre.
