Other Gothic novelists?
#3
Gothic literature of any kind (horror, romance, etc.) has always been considered an unwanted step-child to "real" literature. So, sadly, I don't think it has been considered worth a publisher's time to translate novels from other languages into English.

Gothic elements exist cross-culturally, though. Asian cultures, for instance, utilize many traditional Gothic elements in their ghost and horror stories, and even their movies. Take "The Ring" for instance. Even in the American version, you can see all the Gothic elements at work (the old house, the deep dark family secret, the mystery, the sense of dread, etc.)
