This was the first book in the Full Moon Press (now defunct) Definitive Classics Series. This special edition contains two complete novels by Joseph Sheridan Le Fanu, with a foreword by Paul Little (the publisher) and introduction by Scott Nicholson. The book is illustrated by Glenn Chadbourne, Josh Thompson, and Alex McVey. All five have signed the book on a special illustrated signature page.
Carmilla is the original novel that inspired Bram Stoker to write the best known vampire story of all time, Dracula. First published in 1872, Carmilla tells the story of a young woman's susceptibility to the attentions of a female vampire named Carmilla, and the story is thick with erotic undertones. This is a must read book for the vampire or horror fan.
The second novel included in this edition is The Evil Guest. This book predates Carmilla and details the mayhem that a beautiful young governess brings to a household in the countryside.
