Gothic Literature Resources on the Internet

Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Hi,

The book cover to " Darwich Castle" is by artist Manuel Perez Clemente, he goes by the moniker Sanjulian. The cover art to "Mortissimo" is by Sanjulian as well.

Next up is "Death Lives in a Mansion" I'm pretty sure is artist Robert Abbett's work. I'll try to confirm this at a later date.

The artist of " The Ghost of Channing House" is Lou Marchetti. Marchetti is also the cover artist to "Out of the Fog" and "Polly the Worried".

"Alibi for Isabel" is by artist Victor Kalin.

The cover art to "The Unsheltered" is by artist Robert McGinnis.

The cover art to "Isle of the Undead" is by Allan Kass.

The cover art to "The Third Spectre" is by Ron Lesser.

While studying for a degree in literature I happened across a range of
essays and papers on the net about Gothic novels which I have subsequently linked to on my website. Most of them are quite academic and may be of help to other literature students.

Early Gothic authors:

Ann Radcliffe
Matthew Lewis
Horace Walpole
Regina Maria Roche
Charles Maturin
Charlotte Dacre

Later authors:

Mary Shelley
Edgar Allen Poe
Robert Louis Stevenson
Bram Stoker
M.R. James

I've created a Facebook devoted to Gothic Romance Paperback Novels & their cover art at:

Submissions and discussion welcome :-)

I've also had many of the images uploaded here on my personal website at:

Some very nice covers on your site. Have you read them all?

In particular, I'm curious to know if The House was Dark by Rebecca James is any good. Have you read that one?

I wanted to add my blog here. I have posted a few reviews and plan to post frequently. So far, I've reviewed novels by Barbara Michaels, Dorothy Eden, and Velda Johnston and plan to post a wide variety of well known and not so well known Gothic romance and Gothic novels. I started the blog after noticing there were not many easily found ones of its type...

I started a Gothic Reads group on Facebook this summer. Possessed: Timeless Gothic Reads is open for discussing, sharing, seeking recommendations, etc. for all Gothic literature: Romance, Horror, Southern, Classic, etc. 

   

As a bonus, one member suggested a buddy read so we've picked The Shivering Sands by Victoria Holt as our seasonal read to be discussed the week of August 19, 2018. 

   

If you're on Facebook, feel free to join the group and start conversations.
