This is a collection of four early Le Fanu short stories and the first of the manuscripts by Rev. Francis Purcell. The stories cross several genres, all with a dark theme though not necessarily supernatural.
The four included short stories are:
The Ghost and the Bone-Setter (first published January 1838)
The Fortunes of Sir Robert Ardagh (March 1838)
The Last Heir of Castle Connor (June 1838)
The Drunkard's Dream (August 1838)
It would be hard for me to pick a favorite as each of them is so different in style.
