How do you define 'classic gothics'?

I would suspect that those groups gravitate more toward horror gothics than gothic romances. I believe the intent of this forum is to discuss gothic romance novels.

Whoa. Hold on there. I listen to gothic music, but I don't walk around in black with a pale face. I'm in auditing! AND, the assumption that certain people only like certain books is stereotyping. So because I like gothic music, I am more likely to only like horror gothic? People with gothic interests read many things, including beach books, literature, nonfiction etc.

Whoa. Hold on there. Note I said "and/or" and "I would suspect" not "are more likely." No offense intended. Thanks for enlightening me about "people with gothic interests."

No offense taken! Thanks! Cool
