Read in September, 2004

At the tail end of my college career, I took a class in Gothic Lit.. This was I think the first book I read in the class, and it absolutely changed my life.

It sucked me in with its delicious eeriness. I just love the melodrama and spooky images of night in the woods, the lightning, the psychological abnormalities...it paved the way for the thrillers in print and on screen to come.

Now, every chance I get to read anything Gothic, I go out of my way. There are a bunch of really good websites, one in particular, that have short stories by famous Gothic writers.

I recommend Dark Side of the Net...enjoy!
