Valentine Penrose – The Bloody Countess

Posted by demonik on May 18, 2009

Valentine Penrose – The Bloody Countess (NEL, 1972)

Much admired history of the life and bloody crimes of Elizabeth Bathory, which, in Penrose’s capable hands, reads like a savage Gothic novel from the M. G. Lewis/ de Sade-in-Justine-mode school. Not to be confused with Robert Lory’s The Witching Of Dracula which addresses the Countess’s improbable adventures centuries after her death.

Thanks to Justin Marriott of Paperback Fanatic for the scan!
