Comments

"The Tomb of Sarah" gained acclaim as a classic vampire story after it appeared in the Pall Mall magazine in December 1910. It tells what happens when the tomb of the evil Countess Sarah, murdered in 1630, is disturbed during the restoration of a church. Along with Hume Nisbet's "The Vampire Maid" and E. F. Benson's "Mrs. Amworth," it is among the foremost early 20th-century stories to feature a female vampire. Frederick George Loring (1869-1951) was an English naval officer, wireless expert, and writer.
