Description

Canadian Gothic? From the land of the polite and the national obsession with curling? You bet! Although there have been American and British collections in New Gothic writing, this is the first collection with Canadian writers only. The term "New Gothic" refers to tales told in the context of our modern world. These tales will often take characters, complacent in how their world works, and throw them a curve so things are not as they seem.

About the authors

Eric Henderson wrote his doctorate on American Gothicist John Hawkes and has taught courses on Edgar Allan Poe. He teaches English literature and writing in Victoria, BC.
