Varney the Vampire
by Thomas Preskett Prest
Publisher: Project Gutenberg 2005
The following romance is collected from seemingly the most authentic sources, and the Author must leave the question of credibility entirely to his readers, not even thinking that he is peculiarly called upon to express his own opinion upon the subject. Nothing has been omitted in the life of the unhappy Varney, which could tend to throw a light upon his most extraordinary career, and the fact of his death just as it is here related, made a great noise at the time through Europe and is to be found in the public prints for the year 1713.

by Gaston Leroux - Grosset & Dunlap
Gaston Leroux's book is much darker than the familiar Broadway musical and film. A genuine Gothic murder, the Phantom of the Opera, terrorizes Paris Opera House by a blackmail plot, and murderous actions after that. Absorbing and fascinating reading.
