CARMILLA by J. Sheridan LeFanu. An Early Fright In Styria, we, though by no means magnificent people, inhabit a castle, or schloss.
A small income, in that part of the world, goes a great way. Eight or nine hundred a year does wonders. Scantily enough ours would have answered among wealthy people at home. My father is English, and I bear an English name, although I never saw England. My father was in the Austrian service, and retired upon a pension and his patrimony, and purchased this feudal residence, and the small estate on which it stands, a bargain. Nothing can be more picturesque or solitary. Over all this the schloss shows its many-windowed front; its towers, and its Gothic chapel.
The forest opens in an irregular and very picturesque glade before its gate, and at the right a steep Gothic bridge carries the road over a stream that winds in deep shadow through the wood. Respecting the cause of the desertion of this striking and melancholy spot, there is a legend which I shall relate to you another time.

THE FALLEN. Grimmtmp from cmu.edu - StumbleUpon. This book contains 209 tales collected by the brothers Grimm.
The exact print source is unknown. The etext appears to be based on the translation by Margaret Hunt called Grimm's Household Tales, but it is not identical to her edition. (Some of the translations are slightly different, the arrangement also differs, and the Grimm's scholarly notes are not included.) The etext received by the Universal Library did not include story titles. They have been restored in this edition, based on Hunt's titles. Note that these tales are presented more or less as the Grimms collected and edited them (and as Hunt saw fit to translate them).
NEW: There is now a more accurate version of the Hunt translation posted by William Barker. Get (Almost) Any Book For Free: 100+ (Kosher) Sites Offering Great Literature for Download.
