Horatio Walpole, 4th Earl of Orford, was an English art historian, man of letters, antiquarian and politician. He is now largely remembered for Strawberry Hill, the home he built in Twickenham, south-west London where he revived the Gothic style some decades before his Victorian successors, and for his Gothic novel, The Castle of Otranto. Along with the book, his literary reputation rests on his Letters, which are of significant social and political interest. He was the son of Sir Robert Walpole, and cousin of Lord Nelson.

Widely acknowledged as the first Gothic novel, "The Castle of Otranto" is a tale of greed, lust, terror, and retribution. After her fiance is mysteriously slain just before they are to be married, Isabella must ward off the attentions of Manfred, her fiance's father, who schemes to marry her despite the existence of a living wife. In "The Old English Baron," the peasant-born but distinguished Edmund is welcomed into the family of the local baron, where he discovers a hidden enemy and uncovers a ghostly secret. These stories have been carefully edited to follow current American practice with respect to punctuation and paragraphing.
