Set during the reign of King George II, this gruesome tale concerns the persecution of the Bannerworth family by Sir Francis Varney, a vampire who has developed the habit of creeping into the Bannerworth home and sucking the blood of their daughter, Flora. Varney is presented sympathetically, a victim of circumstances as he tries to save himself, and his victims, from such dreadful acts.

About the Author

The authorship of VARNEY THE VAMPIRE is unclear. The work has been attributed to Thomas Preskett Prest (c. 1810-1859) and James Malcolm Rhymer (1814-1889), two prolific 19th century British writers of "penny dreadfuls," highly popular and sensational works aimed at working-class audiences.
