Reading by Elizabeth Klett

Carmilla is the ultimate gothic vampire tale—stylish, menacing, sensual, and spellbinding. It stands as one of the richest, most literate and most enduring stories in the history of the vampire sub-genre. Bram Stoker’s horror masterpiece, Dracula, was heavily influenced by Le Fanu’s short story.

“You will think me cruel, very selfish, but love is always selfish; the more ardent the more selfish. How jealous I am you cannot know. You must come with me, loving me, to death; or else hate me, and still come with me, and hating me through death and after. There is no such word as indifference in my apathetic nature.”

Joseph Sheridan le Fanu
