    How do you happen to know about one of my favorites? [No comma after Sheridan; Joseph Sheridan LeFanu is his full name].

    I think "Uncle Silas" is my favorite of his; I reread it every few years.

    Carmilla was inspired by the Coleridge poem "Christabel".

    That's "Carmilla". You're out of your depth if you're not copying and pasting. :p

    From some youngish cow-child more likely.

    Le Fanu was a haunting writer and 'Carmilla' was definitely one of his most crypto-erotic works.
