The Purcell Papers by J. Sheridan Le Fanu

The Purcell Papers - Volume 1 - Joseph Sheridan Le Fanu


This was a pretty good collection of classic short stories. Some horrific, some not so much. It seemed that all of them had a little bit of humor, which I liked. I also like Le Fanu's writing style, which flows easily, despite its age.



A Drunkard's Dream was my favorite story in this volume, because it's interesting to think about what other books or films this tale might have inspired. Recommended for fans of classic horror short stories.
