    1. I think this is a republication of an earlier version for god knows what reason? Anyway, it's terrible; what good there is in it is entirely to LeFanu's credit, to the point that I'm tempted to call this less a retelling and more baldfaced plagiarism seeing as entire passages are lifted word-for-word from the original and spliced together with bad drama and worse erotica. Avoid.
