Joseph Sheridan Le Fanu gave life to the modern ghost story style and inspired the genre's most famous contributor, M. R. James. Gathered together for the first time are Le Fanu's complete ghost stories in 30 extraordinary recordings.
Master of metaphysical medicine Dr. Martin Hesselius recounts the case of the Rev. Mr. Jennings, very gentle and very kind. A seemingly harmless restorative unveils a terrifying primal manifestation, convincing the confused and disturbed clergyman that he is being drawn inexorably in and in by "the enormous machinery of hell".
In fear and desperation, all other practitioners ineffectual, Mr. Jennings turns to Dr. Hesselius for help.The recording is accompanied by an e-book essay reflecting on the story's influences and legacy, written by Le Fanu authority Jim Rockhill.
