About This Book

THE ENCYCLOPEDIA OF THE GOTHIC

"Well written and interesting [it is] a testament to the breadth and depth of knowledge about its central subject among the more than 130 contributing writers, and also among the three editors, each of whom is a significant figure in the field of gothic studies … A reference work that's firmly rooted in and actively devoted to expressing the current state of academic scholarship about its area."
New York Journal of Books
"A substantial achievement."
