Ary Scheffer, Lenore, or The dead ride fast, 1830.
I want to read a light comedy romance horror novel about an alp (you know, those German vampire-elf-incubi). So a girl wakes up one night from weird dreams to find this funny fellow sitting on her chest, maybe sucking her tit (they like breast milk). He’s wearing a silly hat and, when he sees she’s awake, squeaks in alarm and turns into a bug and flies away. But he comes back the next night and an unsettling love begins to bloom.
