Something there is in an author’s voice that totally enwraps us.  Through the creator’s pace and inflections, booms and whispers, pauses and laughter, we hear all the secrets in a new way.  We also come closer to a hidden source:  what are the rhythms in the artist’s own head and heart, the mysterious thrum of his or her own creative power?  Eight premier world Gothicists are about to take you on an extended ghost-chase, a stroll through Gothic fields, a kind of truth-seeking with horrible consequences, and I thank them for it.  Never heard before are these tales of Iraq, Russia, Japan, Australia, Scotland, Canada, and the American East Coast.  The tales are not for the sensitive or very young, as mature language and extreme situations erupt.  I promise that hearing them alone, and in the dark, is quite for the best.  Indeed, herein are men and women who only smile in the dark.  For the most trembling of you, a knife or small hatchet may be handy.
And now, for the weirdness you’ve waited for . . .
