"Machado's work as editor is vitally important to this new edition . . . Machado reminds us of the problematic aspects of this seminal work, but she also invites readers, whether they are fans of vampire tales or not, to dive in and experience a book that birthed a trope."-- "Booklist"
"Simultaneously a delicious vampire tale and a meaningful exercise in remembering silenced voices and questioning the authority of tradition."-- "Kirkus Reviews"
"[Machado's] notes and introduction transform the novel from Victorian Gothic into postmodern Gothic, which makes this edition of Carmilla something the original text never was."-- "Katharine Coldiron for Vol. 1 Brooklyn"
