Revelations in Black

For tonight's quick countdown to Halloween post, I thought to suggest a short story to read, which I found on The Penguin Book of Vampire Stories. Guess what it will be about? No but seriously, Halloween is not completed without a proper vampire story and this one is a nice classic, written by Carl Jacobi. It is titled Revelations in Black and you can read it online here. Tell me what you think. What makes it a perfect Halloween read, apart from the obvious genre it belongs to is the fact that it is also set around the same time of year: in September and October. And there is an antiquarian, old book hiding dark secrets, there is so much to love!
