Nightmare Abbey is a Gothic satire in which the author pokes fun at the romantic movement in contemporary English literature, in particular its obsession with morbid subjects. Most of the characters in the novel are based on historical figures. It follows the fortunes of Christopher Glowry, Esquire, a morose widower who lives with his only son Scythrop in his family mansion Nightmare Abbey, which is situated on a strip of dry land between the sea and the fens in Lincolnshire.

This book has 86 pages in the PDF version, and was originally published in 1818.
