Edward Bulwer-Lytton, Lord of Lytton, was born on May 25, 1803 in London, England. He entered Trinity College, Cambridge in 1822, won the Chancellor's Gold Medal for English verse in 1825, and received a B.A. degree the following year. He was a novelist, poet, playwright, and politician. He coined vis mere the phrases the "pursuit of the almighty dollar", "the pen is mightier than the sword", and the opening line "It was a dark and stormy night". He wrote in a variety of genres, including historical fiction, mystery, romance, the occult, and science fiction. His works included Falkland, Pelham, Eugene Aram, The Last Days of Pompei, Ernest Maltravers, Zanoni, The Last of the Barons, The Caxtons, and A Strange Story. He also published several volumes of poetry including Ismael and The New Timon. His best known play was The Lady of Lyons. He served as the Secretary of State for the Colonies in from 1858 to 1859 and played a large part in the organization of the new colony of British Columbia. He became Baron Lytton of Knebworth in July 1866 and thereafter took his place in the House of Peers. He died on May 23, 1873, just short of his 70th birthday. The cause of death was not clear but it was thought that an infection he had in his ear had affected his brain. (Bowker Author Biography) vis mindre

Kort biografi
Edward Bulwer changed his surname to Bulwer-Lytton in 1844 at the request of his mother, and was created first Baron Lytton in 1866. He was a popular writer who coined several phrases that would go on to become clichés, including the opening line to his 1830 novel Paul Clifford, "It was a dark and stormy night." His name lives on in the annual Bulwer-Lytton Fiction Contest, in which the contestants craft bad openings for imaginary novels.

Et forhekset hus i London.
En meget jordnær mand, hans tro og frygtløse tjener og hans tro hund flytter ind i et forhekset hus for at undersøge det nærmere. Inden længe flygter tjeneren over hals og hovede og hunden ligger død i hjørnet med halsen vredet om.
Manden kontakter ejeren af huset og de finder et skjult rum med effekter der tyder på at huset er forhekset. De finder også et billede af en mand, de har set før. Men billedet er to hundrede år gammelt og de har set manden i live. Fortælleren opsøger manden kun for at blive hypnotiseret og brugt til at forudsige mandens fremtid. Han vil leve i endnu mange hundrede år og til sidst starte en krig, der trods ødelæggelserne vil forny verden.

Udmærket beskrivelse af hvordan angsten griber hovedpersonen og hvordan man kan forestille sig en ond person med næsten evigt liv
