Review of “Ultor de Lacy” (1861)


Joseph Sheridan Le Fanu (writer).

Read in 2017.

At this point commences the marvellous ingredient of my tale.

Folklore fantasy, fairy story. Inelegantly told, lacking even a beautiful environment, and conspicuously empty of ideas. This seems like the sort of fantasy story that would give the genre a bad name.
