How did you first get interested in Gothic books?
#9
I am also a fan of the original Dark Shadows. I was 12 years old when it went off the air.

I bought a few of the paperbacks by Marilyn Ross and my public library steered me toward Barbara Michaels. I still have the entire set of the Dark Shadows paperbacks as well as some original paperback editions of Victoria Holt and Barbara Michaels with their terrific Harry Bennett illustrations. About ten years ago I acquired an old fashioned wire book rack in which they are proudly displayed.

The most recent Gothic I read was a re-read of Mary Stewart's Nine Coaches Waiting. Great book! As a teenager I turned to Stephen King and followed his work for years, as well as other horror authors, but my own writing more and more turns back toward Gothic and Gothic styling.
