"This welcome edition of Sheridan Le Fanu’s classic gothic tale Carmilla frames the original serialized text with an admirable introduction and a series of brilliant essays that both return the vampire tale to its native historical earth and trace its flowering across varied national terrains, expressive genres and cultural traditions. Costello-Sullivan and her colleagues have given Le Fanu’s vampire story a new un-death, in which its intellectual depth, political seriousness, complex eroticism and popular appeal are evident in all of their profound interconnectedness."—Joseph Valente, author of The Myth of Manliness in Irish National Culture, 1880–1922

"Costello-Sullivan’s exciting new edition of Le Fanu’s Carmilla, the sly 1872 Anglo-Irish vampire tale that laid the groundwork for the arguably less subtle Dracula, productively returns to the text’s original serialized publication format….This book is suitable for both undergraduates and advanced scholars of gender, sexuality, and Irish and film studies alike."—Mary Burke, author of ‘Tinkers’: Synge and the Cultural History of the Irish Traveller
