A collection of five short stories, presented as selections from the posthumous papers of the occult detective Dr Martin Hesselius, 'In a Glass Darkly' (1872) was published a year before Le Fanu died. The title, taken from the Bible 1 Corinthians 13, is a deliberate misquotation in which the passage describes humanity as perceiving the world ‘through a glass darkly.’ Featuring tales laced with gothic horror as well as those shadowed in mystery, there are stories fit for even the most bloodthirsty of readers from the demonic 'Green Tea' to the sinister 'The Familiar'. Probably the collection’s most famous story, about a female vampire, 'Carmilla', will leave your spine tingling with the fear that someone is watching you! FLAME TREE 451: From mystery to crime, supernatural to horror and fantasy to science fiction, Flame Tree 451 offers a healthy diet of werewolves and mechanical men, blood-lusty vampires, dastardly villains, mad scientists, secret worlds, lost civilizations and escapist fantasies. Discover a storehouse of tales gathered specifically for the reader of the fantastic. Each book features a brand new biography and glossary of Literary, Gothic and Victorian terms.
