202 pp, 8 1/2" H. "(A) collection written by some of the best writers in Canada. These stories tap into the deep fears in us all. A man's sexual fantasy becomes a frightening, hallucinatory embrace of what seems to him the ghost of his dead wife / While living an apparently 'normal' life, a man descends into a personal hell cohabited by monsters and outcasts / A blackly humorous story of teenage rebellion is also a tale of abandonment and family dysfunction. The stories in this anthology may cause sleepless nights, bad dreams and general unease. You've been warned. Welcome to the Nightmare." Contents: Introduction; Into the Places of Those Lost; The Story of an Eye; These Are Ghost Stories; The Last Ferry; Letters (On a Book Lately Circulating in the Offices of Transport Canada); Cerberus; The Beautiful Children; A Thin White Hand; The Apostle; Peterborough; Evil Eye; Instructions for Navigating a Labyrinth; Miasma; Torch; Hounds. Interior - clean and tight with no previous ownership marks, tiny bump at bottom corner of textblock. Exterior - very minor edgewear/rubbing, spine flat and uncreased. N° de ref. de la librería 5549

Acerca de


Canadian Gothic? From the land of the polite and the national obsession with curling? You bet! Although there have been American and British collections in New Gothic writing, this is the first collection with Canadian writers only. The term "New Gothic" refers to tales told in the context of our modern world. These tales will often take characters, complacent in how their world works, and throw them a curve so things are not as they seem.

From the Publisher:

Eric Henderson completed his doctorate on American Gothicist John Hawkes and teaches English at Okanagan University College in Kelowna, B.C. Madeline Sonik has published a collection of short stories, Home Sick, and is involved in the study of magic and metaphysical experimentation.
