The Stephen King of the 19th century -- J.S. Le Fanu -- haunts MYSTERY!'s with his 1869 horror classic, The Wyvern Mystery.

A beautiful young woman elopes with the son of her repulsive guardian and finds herself in a country house terrorized by an evil presence. Then things grow worse.

Author Ron Miller explores the suspense genre which The Wyvern Mystery helped launch in an essay: Old Dark Houses.
