LeFanu writes a mean ghost story Bear in mind that he wrote during the Victorian era when the ghost story was nearly formulaic in its composition spectral ladies in white rattling of chains and moaning in the night churchyard phantoms and haunted estates All the things that we now think of as cliche but which I still secretly enjoy if well done LeFanu partook of some of these same devices but he broke literary ground in the genre too Carmilla one of the earliest vampire stories preceded I believe by Varney the Vampireis a brilliant leap forward in the vampire tale and hums with a repressed eroticism that has blossomed and pardon the pun been done to death in modern vampire literature The stories that feature the setting of Golden Friars The Haunted Baronet and The Dead Sextonare remarkable and thoroughly enjoyable for their depth of characterization mainly in the secondary characters of the village folk Golden Friars is a real place to me because of this deft handling I withheld the fifth star because LeFanu recycled some of his plots and the characters with them a dismal habit some writers fall into when they have a lazy moment It was disappointing to essentially read the same story twice under different titles Shame on you JS But otherwise LeFanu is one of my favorite writers of terrifying tales from this era and he does a masterful job

I'm torn on rating this one While it contains most of LeFanu's best stories there are some major clunkers in here also Most notably 'The Fortunes of Sir Robert Ardagh' has the exact same ending as the much better story 'The Haunted Baronet' Stories like 'Ardagh' wouldn't interest any readers except the completionist onesIt's true that LeFanu is one of the masters of gothic horror stories I'd recommend starting with the collection In a Glass Darkly if you're new to him
