Published alongside 'Carmilla' in the landmark collection In a Glass Darkly (1872), Le Fanu’s GREEN TEA was first serialised in Charles Dickens’ magazine All the Year Round in 1869. This 150th anniversary edition, with new illustrations by Alisdair Wood and an eight-page introduction by Matthew Holness, is the definitive celebration of Le Fanu’s masterpiece of psychological terror and despair. Also included is ''Some Meditations on 'Green Tea' '' and ''Exterior Visions: Assessments of 'Green Tea' by Le Fanu's Contemporaries'', both by Jim Rockhill & Brian J. Showers. Each copy of the book includes a CD of a specially commissioned recording of Le Fanu's classic tale, adapted with original music by Reggie Chamberlain-King and performed by Belfast's Wireless Mystery Theatre. LIMITED EDITION: 400 copies printed signed by editor/publisher Brian Showers, Jim Rockhill, plus Matthew Holness and Alisdair Wood, together with a facsimile of Sheridan J. Le Fanu's signature.

''since its first publication, Le Fanu’s tale has lost none of its potency. It tells of the good natured Reverend Jennings, who writes late at night on arcane topics abetted by a steady supply of green tea. Is he insane or have these nocturnal activities opened an 'interior sight' that affords a route of entry for an increasingly malignant simian companion?''.
