Press: Cosimo Classics (November 1, 2008)
Author Name:Le Fanu, Joseph Sheridan
The foremost teller of scary stories in his day and a profound influence on both the novelists and filmmakers of the 20th century, Anglo-Irish author JOSEPH THOMAS SHERIDAN LE FANU (1814–1873) has, sadly, fallen out of scholarly and popular favor, and unfairly so.
To this day, contemporary readers who happen across his works praise his talent for weaving a tense literary atmosphere tinged by the supernatural and bolstered by hints of ambiguous magic.
First published in 1872, In a Glass Darkly is a collection of Le Fanu’s short fiction, and includes: • “Green Tea” • “The Familiar” • “Mr.
Justice Harbottle” • “The Room in the Dragon Volant” • “Carmilla” With a series of new editions of Le Fanu’s works, Cosimo is proud to reintroduce modern book lovers to the writings of the early master of suspense fiction who pioneered the concept of “psychological horror.”
