THE HIDDEN DOOR and Other Strange Stories


More unsettling tales of the fantastic by the incomparable Vernon Lee; some laced with a wee bit of ironical humor.
A secret chamber in the tower of old Hotspur Hall is opened…
A young artist becomes obsessed by a century-old aria and its singer…
A bric-a-brac collector is captivated by a life-size doll, the portrait of an old count’s dead wife…
A sinful, lustful cavalier ventures to make a pact to obtain salvation from eternal damnation…
…And more……
===================
Vernon Lee was the pseudonym of British writer Violet Paget (14 October 1856 – 13 February 1935). She is remembered today primarily for her supernatural fiction and her work on aesthetics. An early follower of Walter Pater, she wrote over a dozen volumes of essays on art, music, and travel.
