Something evil is lurking under the ground in Diana’s Grove. Summoned by his great-uncle, Richard Salton, Adam Salton travels to Lesser Hill, Mercia, only to find himself surrounded by evil. Be it the Castra Regis’s mesmeric assault on Lilla Watford, a child’s mysterious wounds, the lady Arabella March’s murder of Oolanga, or the terrifying white worm that dwells in a pit in Arabella’s house, Adam must work quickly to save himself and the other inhabitants of the area.

Also known as The Garden of Evil, The Lair of the White Worm was originally published in 1911, just one year before Bram Stoker’s death. It has been adapted for film.

About Bram Stoker

See more books from this Author
Abraham (Bram) Stoker was an Irish writer, best known for his Gothic classic Dracula, which continues to influence horror writers and fans more than 100 years after it was first published. Educated at Trinity College, Dublin, in science, mathematics, oratory, history, and composition, Stoker’s writing was greatly influenced by his father’s interest in theatre and his mother’s gruesome stories about her childhood during the cholera epidemic in 1832. Although a published author of the novels Dracula, The Lady of the Shroud, and The Lair of the White Worm, and his work as part of the literary staff of The London Daily Telegraph, Stoker made his living as the personal assistant of actor Henry Irving and the business manager of the Lyceum Theatre in London. Stoker died in 1912, leaving behind one of the most memorable horror characters ever created.
