Synopsis

Penned by the skilful hand of Charles Brockden Brown, Wieland was one of the first American Gothic novels and is a fantastic piece of horror fiction. The terror begins when Clara Wieland's family starts being plagued by mysterious voices and a mysterious stranger named Carwin appears in their lives. From a zealously religious father who one night spontaneously combusts in a temple, to entrancing voices encouraging madness and murder, Clara's fear intensifies as she tries to escape the atmosphere of doom that surrounds her family. A Gothic sensation, full of vivid suspense and mystery.



FLAME TREE 451: From mystery to crime, supernatural to horror and fantasy to science fiction, Flame Tree 451 offers a healthy diet of werewolves and mechanical men, blood-lusty vampires, dastardly villains, mad scientists, secret worlds, lost civilizations and escapist fantasies. Discover a storehouse of tales gathered specifically for the reader of the fantastic. Each book features a brand new biography and glossary of Literary, Gothic and Victorian terms.

Charles Brockden Brown (1771-1810) is an important figure in Gothic literature, credited with writing one of the first American Gothic novels. He was born in Pennsylvania to a Quaker family and originally trained to become a lawyer, but abandoned this for a literary career. The religious themes which feature in some of his work may be a reaction against his religious upbringing. Unable to apply the Gothic European settings of crumbling castles to America, he relocated his tales to rural locales, but maintained the same chilling atmosphere within his stories.
