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
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.”
