Any other closet readers?

You might try Bride of Pendorric, which I think would qualify as a bona fide Gothic. Although the first few chapters are set on the isle of Capri in the Bay of Naples, the story soon moves to an old castle on the coast of Cornwall, and from that point the tone becomes very "Gothic" indeed.

I've got a copy. Haven't read it in years. Thanks for the tip.
