"The Room in the Dragon Volant" is a mysterious story about a premature burial, a theme favoured by Poe some years previously. When a chivalric young man tries to save an innocent countess from the clutches of a greedy count, little does he suspect that the whole situation could be a trap. With plenty of Gothic elements and some remarkable episodes of horror, "The Room in the Dragon Volant" is a haunting mystery story that will keep readers at the edge of their seat.

Joseph Sheridan Le Fanu (1814-1873) was an Irish author of short stories and novels. He was one of the most important writers of Gothic, mystery and horror stories of the Victorian era. Le Fanu’s influence cannot be neglected, for he helped develop the writing styles for atmosphere, setting, and narration. His most important works are "Uncle Silas", "The House by the Churchyard", and his short story collection "In a Glass Darkly".
