Editorial Reviews

Review

[Machado's] notes and introduction transform the novel from Victorian Gothic into postmodern Gothic, which makes this edition of Carmilla something the original text never was.

-- "Katharine Coldiron for Vol. 1 Brooklyn"

Machado's work as editor is vitally important to this new edition . . . Machado reminds us of the problematic aspects of this seminal work, but she also invites readers, whether they are fans of vampire tales or not, to dive in and experience a book that birthed a trope.

-- "Booklist"

Simultaneously a delicious vampire tale and a meaningful exercise in remembering silenced voices and questioning the authority of tradition.

-- "Kirkus Reviews"

Bingham Prize for Debut Fiction, and the winner of the Bard Fiction Prize, the Lambda Literary Award for Lesbian Fiction, the Shirley Jackson Award, and the National Book Critics Circle's John Leonard Prize.

5.0 out of 5 stars This edition of carmilla
Reviewed in Canada on November 20, 2021
The cover of carmilla seem to look like a biology diagram of bats but when I opened up the paperback book. There are flaps that allows for quick bookmarking, with beautiful illustrations. I’m very impressed by this style done for the illustrations. The paper used for the pages are soft while not too thin, seems to be of standard quality.
While this is a christmas gift for my friend, I’m thinking of buying one for myself.
