A few questions from a newcomer to the genre
#1
All questions are in regards to the 60's & 70's era.

I've only just begun reading my first gothic romance book, "Kirkland Revels," by Victoria Holt, and I'm hooked. And I am already thinking about more books of the same time and genre.

I have a few questions that I am sure can be answered on this forum.

1) Please relieve my fear: As with many things -- books in this case -- you've read one, you've read them all. Is this true?

2) I am captivated by the "traditional" covers. Why am I compelled to collect them all?

3) I'm alright with the supernatural, but I'd rather not read books that contain references to tarot cards, ouija boards, demons, and other references to witchcraft. I believe a story can be eerie and captivating without all that. How prevalent is witchcraft in these books?

I'd appreciate any responses.
