Summary

Summary

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.”
