The House By The Churchyard
In this classic horror and historic crime novel set in Chapelizod 1767, Le Fanu creates a profound sense of evil and the half-light which best sets it off. This is one of the finest examples of literature of this kind, from a master of the art of the supernatural.

James Joyce was a fan of this most talented of writers. Le Fanu was a master of thrilling suspense and crime combining murder blackmail and supernatural thrills to make this a riveting read from start to finish.
The House by the Churchyard is simply a triumph of style. From the outset, this particular work contrives to create an atmosphere of such unease and foreboding, that the reader cannot help but be drawn in, despite any well-founded misgivings. It is a tale that will not fade quickly from memory, but one which will challenge, and one which will ultimately delight.
