Anmeldelser

«'Wonderful. A book as vivid, strange and rich as its topic' - China Miéville»

«'A compelling read' - On Magazine»

«'Roger Luckhurst sets forth an extensive, macabre taxonomy of the protean genre and its hallmark “pleasant shivers,” dark tendrils grasping through time and space to ensnare gloomy castles, suburban shopping malls and even the most desolate — though maybe not quite unoccupied — reaches of the cosmos … Luckhurst manages to balance granular detail … with liveliness and charm' - The New York Times»

«'A lavish publication of more than 350 arresting images that sparkle with colour much as the pages of text bristle with dark pull-quotes … Luckhurst’s prose is irresistible … No one will come away from this book without a reinvigorated sense of gothic forms and possibilities in the twenty-first century' - The Times Literary Supplement»

«'This book is a must-have … The book’s scope is impressive, extending out to a number of iconic films, the writing is beautiful and the illustrations lavish … A delightfully comprehensive resource' - Teach Secondary»

«'Illuminating and wide-ranging … there’s a freshness and concision to the text which is allied to a distillation of decades of research … An erudite overview, a visual pleasure' - Fortean Times»
