"This novel by Le Fanu satirizes the table-rapping and spiritualism that were so often staples in sensation fiction of the author's day. And it is interesting to note that Le Fanu, the great creator of Victorian horrors, was able to laugh at what is generally presented with considerable seriousness." - Tymn (ed), Horror Literature 2-57.
