In tandem with the review itself that we are very excited to publish soon, we wanted to also introduce our informal book recommendation series, “Casting New Shadows.” Much like the driving mission behind the publication, we want to help expand your gothic reading list. We love our Poe and Du Maurier as much as anyone (and you should definitely read those!) but our goal is to bring attention to some pieces that may not get the “gothic” label but embody the gothic spirit. Rest assured, everything we recommend will have an eerie atmosphere at heart. We want to pull in works from a variety of cultures and time periods to enrich the conversation. We will just as quickly break all these parameters and recommend a piece that’s deep in the gothic cannon when we feel like it! Stay posted—more to come.
