House of the Vampire is a Gothic 1907 novella. It is a very unusual and compelling vampire story. An ambitious young writer comes under the powerful influence of a mysterious older master, who seems to have left a trail of ruined proteges in his wake. The story is as much about the nature of artistic creation as it is a chilling and unlikely vampire tale. Guaranteed to chill the blood and frighten the soul! An audio book must for all Gothic horror fans!
