by Joseph Sheridan Le FanuIncludes "the awesome one with the chick from the painting who is forced to marry the undead guy" and the somewhat less awesome one "in which Dude lives with his cousin in a house owned by his uncle, and the house is horribly haunted...by a portrait. Oh, and its original. Who was a judge. Who hanged himself." No explanation as to what is up with the portrait is ever given. Or the monstrous rat. Was it just a normal oversized rat? Or was it some sort of supernatural thing? Or what?
Still love the whole concept behind "maiden marries undead guy". And the picture as described at the beginning is also amazing. (Note for posterity: I heard that shortly after reading a preview for the 3rd book in C. S. Friedman's Magister series. The short story—particularly the description of what was in the painting—somehow reminded me of that; namely of the temple bit. I guess because both were set in temples? Who knows.)
