J. Sheridan Le Fanu's classic tale of vampirism and lesbianism, first published in 1871, is presented in a new Postern Press edition that includes Le Fanu's story "Green Tea." Says Max Gersh in his Introduction: "Put this elegant tale against Bram Stoker's better known, and far wordier, vampire fantasy, and by several measures Stoker runs second. In its overt sexuality, Carmilla is more modern than its successor, which buried unchaste thoughts under carpets of Victorian high-mindedness. Lovely Carmilla is neither chaste nor well-behaved."

J. Sheridan Le Fanu (1814-1873) was best known for stories of the supernatural, including the short vampire novel Carmilla.From AudioFile:
The appearance of a young and beautiful houseguest jolts young Laura into remembering what may or may not have been a childhood nightmare. Strangely, her visitor, Carmilla, has exactly the same recollection. As Laura's health wanes throughout the visit, Carmilla's vivacity grows. Who would guess she's been dead for over 150 years? Megan Follows's dark and dramatic reading of this vampire classic complements the text perfectly. Refraining from characterization, she recounts Le Fanu's tale from Laura's horrified perspective, vividly illuminating her early relationship with Carmilla, colored by the clarity of retrospection, as the story is recalled later in Laura's life. Follows's voice shudders with disgust at Carmilla's evil, as do her listeners. R.P.L. © AudioFile 2003, Portland, Maine-- Copyright © AudioFile, Portland, Maine
