J. S. Le Fanu – The Vampire Lovers

Posted by demonik on July 25, 2007

The Vampire Lovers And Other Stories: by Joseph Sheridan Le Fanu (Fontana, 1970)

“A thrillingly macabre film from AIP-Hammer starring Ingrid Pitt and Peter Cushing”

Published to tie-in with the Hammer movie, this one saw Le Fanu’s famous “Carmilla” retitled for the occasion, but nobody seemed to mind too much. A novelisation would have been interesting, but this serves as a decent enough introduction to the author’s work.

Vampire Lovers (Carmilla)
Shalken The Painter
Sir Dominick’s Bargain
Narrative Of the Ghost Of a Hand
Green Tea
An Account Of Some Strange Disturbances In Aungier Street
The Fortunes Of Sir Robert Ardagh
