The foremost teller of scary stories in his day and a profound influence on both the novelists and filmmakers of the 20th century, Anglo-Irish author JOSEPH THOMAS SHERIDAN LE FANU (18141873) has, sadly, fallen out of scholarly and popular favor, and unfairly so. To this day, contemporary readers who happen across his works praise his talent for weaving a tense literary atmosphere tinged by the supernatural and bolstered by hints of ambiguous magic. An exceptional example of the sensation novela genre that was wildly popular in the Victorian era, with its focus on lurid crime invading previously cheerful, ordinary, and domestic placesthis 1869 classic gives us a rural estate in 1820s England, a happy new bride, and an ancient myth of a wyvern dragon to spoil the tranquility. Or perhaps theres a more rationaland yet more sinisterexplanation for the distress afflicting poor Alice Fairfield, ne Maybell, lady of Carwell Grange? Redolent of future works including the tales of Sherlock Holmes and the thrillers of Stephen King, The Wyvern Mystery continues to enthrall 21st-century readers. With a series of new editions of Le Fanus works, Cosimo is proud to reintroduce modern book lovers to the writings of the early master of suspense fiction who pioneered the concept of psychological horror.

He was a pioneering figure in the field of fantasy literature and the mentor of fellow writer Lewis Carroll. His writings have been cited as a major literary influence by many notable authors including W. H. Auden, C. S. Lewis, J. R. R. Tolkien, Walter de la Mare, E. Nesbit and Madeleine L'Engle. G. K. Chesterton cited The Princess and the Goblin as a book that had "made a difference to my whole existence". MacDonald has been credited with founding the "kailyard school" of Scottish writing.

What does a good, long ramble in the woods reveal to us about our shared human condition? How do we gracefully shed our civilized layers of defensive behavior, our fear of discovery, of the unknown or once-known but forgotten? Award-winning poet and outdoorsman Sydney Lea vividly explores these issues in this compelling, refreshing and humorous memoir. Sydney Lea lives, writes and roams the woods in Vermont.

To this day, contemporary readers who happen across his works praise his talent for weaving a tense literary atmosphere tinged by the supernatural and bolstered by hints of ambiguous magic. A splendid instance of the sensation novela genre that was wildly popular in the Victorian era, with its focus on lurid crime invading previously cheerful, ordinary, and domestic placesthis 1871 novel creates a sinister stew that encompasses obsessive love, a domineering mother, a menacing doctor, and a peek inside a lunatic asylum. A classic of Gothic terror, The Rose and the Key still horrifies readers today. With a series of new editions of Le Fanus works, Cosimo is proud to reintroduce modern book lovers to the writings of the early master of suspense fiction who pioneered the concept of psychological horror.
