The New Gothic


The Gothic is the most enduring literary tradition in history but in recent years friendly ghosts and vegetarian vampires threaten its foundations.

The New Gothic is a collection of short stories which revisits to the core archetypes of the Gothic, the rambling, secret-filled building, the stranger seeking answers, the black-hearted tyrant, and reminds us not to embrace but to fear the darkness.

A dozen tales of terror fill this anthology including an original, never-before-seen story from the godfather of modern horror, Ramsey Campbell.

  Instilling fear in the hearts of all are:

Jesse BULLINGTON  &  S. J. CHAMBERS

Fi MICHELL • Laura Ellen JOYCE

Richard DANSKY  •  Steve DEMPSEY

Ramsey CAMPBELL

Dmetri KAKMI •  Sean LOGAN  •  Mason WILD

Damien KELLY • Phil REEVES • Ed MARTIN

Editor Beth K. Lewis and the team at Stone Skin Press have selected a terrific set of stories. They hang together, despite disparate elements; each tale hints at the darkness lurking in urban neighborhoods, in old houses, on desolate roads, and in our hearts. Cue Vincent Price’s menacing laugh echoing down a black corridor. There are no castles here, but there’s no sympathy for the devil either.”

    Where’s the full list of authors and their stories? Are these reprints? All new stories? Don’t see how you can sell a book without the most basic of information.
