Gothic Literature

It’s my favorite time of year, folks. Those October through December days are here and I, for one, am ready to kick it off with the creepy, spooky, and kooky month that’s full of tricks, treats and scarily good books to read. For this blog entry I want to take it back—back to the beginning of horror, back to 1764 with the introduction of the Gothic Novel. Gothic tales blend horror and romance, featuring large, crumbling architecture, isolated heroes, a villain who has fallen from grace, supernatural elements and a dark, foreboding sense of dread. Awesome, right?
