Publisher's Summary

Demons, vengeful spirits, insanity, premature burials, and lesbian vampires. In a Glass Darkly contains five diabolical tales of horror and mystery that will get the heart racing. Each story, including the famous "Green Tea" and "Carmilla", is presented as a case from the posthumous papers of Dr. Martin Hesselius, a metaphysical physician who has no doubt as to the existence of supernatural phenomena - unlike our anxious protagonists.... These traditional yet unfamiliar tales were revered upon release, with Bram Stoker writing his own vampire story some 20 years later and Henry James once suggesting that this is "the ideal reading...for the hours after midnight".

"Green Tea"
"The Familiar"
"Mr. Justice Harbottle"
"The Room in Le Dragon Volant"

With the exception of Green Tea, which any fan of The Simpsons appreciate, I was bored. I failed to recognize what might have been inventive for its time ... But only came up with a few hours of Yawn.
