About the Author:

Dublin-born Joseph Thomas Sheridan Le Fanu (1814-1873) established himself as a journalist and writer of fiction and became one of the best-selling authors of the 1860-80s. His sinister and supernatural tales are the precursors of the modern ghost story.

Victor Sage teaches English at the University of East Anglia. A literary critic and short story writer, he has published critical books on Gothic literature, including Horror Fiction in the Protestant Tradition (Macmillan).
