From the author of Troll Stew: A Strange Brew of Dark Fairy Tales and Poems for Adults comes this second collection from the even darker side of Faerie: Gothic stories and poems of romance and suspense; of love and death, and undeath; of lust and envy, betrayal and revenge; tales of nature and supernature red in fang and claw. Macabre, visceral, morbidly erotic, at times grimly humorous and often deeply disturbing, these blood-soaked yarns are certain to haunt your darkest dreams. In "The Witches' Ball", a twisted Gothic version of Cinderella, young Ella is no more than a mortal slave to her wicked stepmother and three stepsisters, who are bloodthirsty vampires in addition to being witches. Denied attendance to the Samhain masquerade known as the Witches' Ball, Ella will be damned if she's going to miss it! "The Devil's Heart" is a loose retelling of "The Ogre's (or Devil's) Heart in the Egg". In this heart-wrenching tale of love and self-sacrifice, a young woman who has been turned into the undead by a sadistic vampire must discover where he has magically hidden his heart in order to destroy him so that she and her lesbian lover might be released from their eternal slavery. "Ruined Rapunzel" is a darkly humorous retelling of the Grimm fairy tale that couldn't get much stranger... though some might think that the tale itself has been ruined in this Gothic version, the title actually refers to the inadvertent destruction of a powerful witch's magical youth-bestowing plant (the rapunzel), for which she exacts a terrible revenge. "Wolflust" is a short and sharp original tale about a young man's unvoiced desires for a woman belonging to another man, and what he resolves to do once he realizes that his lust for her gives him the ability to transform himself into a creature that is part man and part wolf. In "The Wolf in Elanor", a woman who has never been lucky in love goes to a Goth club for the first time, where she meets the man of her dreams... who claims to be, of all things, a vegan werewolf. For excerpts from these tales and more, visit www.christophercourtley.com/darktales.html These are just a few of the stories contained in this remarkable collection, which also features a number of Gothic poems, many of which are themselves tales told in rhyming verse, such as the author's most darkly romantic poetic work, "The Kiss", a six-part narrative poem telling the sordid tale of one vampire couple's fiery, dysfunctional relationship. Also included is Courtley's best-loved poem, "To Be A Bat", which playfully celebrates the uniqueness of this often feared and misunderstood animal.

PETER HARGITAI’s work, both in scope and in style, remains well outside the pale of current poetic fashion including the McPoems of MFA mills and the lip- tongue- ear literature of hiphop. Influenced by the great Hungarian poet Attila József’s obsession with the eternal mother as a metaphor for all human longing, Hargitai probes the nature of spiritual exile on terms that are neither Freudian nor Jungian, American, or Hungarian, but on terms that are uniquely personal and movingly human. Praise for Peter Hargitai’s Mother Tongue: A Broken-Hungarian Love Song: “If traditional confessional poetry, now considered classical, had its halcyon days in the work of Roethke, Lowell, and Plath, it can be said to have reached a new, ethnically charged peak in the work of Peter Hargitai.” Pembroke Magazine “Peter Hargitai is a remarkable versatile and humanely touching poet with a truly distinctive style and voice. These deeply probing intellectual poems exhibit an impressive range and vivacity of genres." Laurence Lieberman Poetry Editor University of Illinois Press

This book explores the Gothic tradition in Canadian literature by tracing a distinctive reworking of the British Gothic in Canada. It traces the ways the Gothic genre was reinvented for a specifically Canadian context. On the one hand, Canadian writers expressed anxiety about the applicability of the British Gothic tradition to the colonies; on the other, they turned to the Gothic for its vitalising rather than unsettling potential. After charting this history of Gothic infusion, Canadian Gothic turns its attention to the body of Aboriginal and diasporic writings that respond to this discourse of national self-invention from a post-colonial perspective. These counter-narratives unsettle the naturalising force of this invented history, rendering the sense of Gothic comfort newly strange. The Canadian Gothic tradition has thus been a conflicted one, which reimagines the Gothic as a form of cultural sustenance. This volume offers an important reconsideration of the Gothic legacy in Canada.

“Simply put, there is absolutely nothing on the market with the range of ambition of this strikingly eclectic collection of essays. Not only is it impossible to imagine a more comprehensive view of the subject, most readers – even specialists in the subject – will find that there are elements of the Gothic genre here of which they were previously unaware.” - Barry Forshaw, Author of British Gothic Cinema and Sex and Film The Palgrave Handbook of Contemporary Gothic is the most comprehensive compendium of analytic essays on the modern Gothic now available, covering the vast and highly significant period from 1918 to 2019. The Gothic sensibility, over 200 years old, embraces its dark past whilst anticipating the future. From demons and monsters to post- apocalyptic fears and ecological fantasies, Gothic is thriving as never before in the arts and in popular culture. This volume is made up of 62 comprehensive chapters with notes and extended bibliographies contributed by scholars from around the world. The chapters are written not only for those engaged in academic research but also to be accessible to students and dedicated followers of the genre. Each chapter is packed with analysis of the Gothic in both theory and practice, as the genre has mutated and spread over the last hundred years. Starting in 1918 with the impact of film on the genre's development, and moving through its many and varied international incarnations, each chapter chronicles the history of the gothic milieu from the movies to gaming platforms and internet memes, television and theatre. The volume also looks at how Gothic intersects with fashion, music and popular culture: a multi-layered, multi-ethnic, even a trans-gendered experience as we move into the twenty first century.

Gothic Britain is the first collection of essays to consider how the Gothic responds to, and is informed by, the British regional experience. Acknowledging how the so-called United Kingdom has historically been divided on nationalistic lines, the twelve original essays in this volume interrogate the interplay of ideas and generic innovations generated in the spaces between the nominal kingdom and its component nations and, innovatively, within those national spaces. Concentrating upon fictions depicting England, Scotland and Wales specifically, Gothic Britain comprehends the generic possibilities of the urban and the rural, of the historical and the contemporary, of the metropolis and the rural settlement – as well as exploring uniquely the fluid space that is the act of travel itself. Reading the textuality of some two hundred years of national and regional identity, Gothic Britain interrogates how the genre has depicted and questioned the natural and built environments of the island of Britain.
