I have sort of been unconsciously immersing myself in gothic literature and films lately. I love this subgenre, and I was excited to see this anthology released in time for my Halloween reading. I really enjoyed the blending of short stories and poetry in a single book, even though I don't read very much poetry. I've always wanted to find a deeper appreciation for poems, so this seemed like the perfect opportunity to read more poetry, while also reading short stories in between.

"I am most certainly haunted." - JT Seate

Haunted Are These Houses is an anthology of 32 gothic poems & short stories edited by Eddie Generous & Erin Sweet Al-Mehairi.

I was very happy to see so many women horror writers in this book, and it was very refreshing.

Some of the stories were good but most I found myself just shrugging. However, that's what you get with compilations. I did like two of the stories "The Silence of Aeoilian Hall" by Moira Gillen and "From the Dusty Mesa" by David Busboom
