While all the interviews in this collection are fine as far as they go, I really did expect them to be tied more into a theory of just what constitutes the proverbial Gothic imagination. To a large degree the core of this book is less about literary theory and more about Tibbetts’ relationship with the body of people known as First Fandom. ( )

Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 0230118178, Paperback)

The Gothic tradition continues to excite the popular imagination. John C. Tibbetts presents interviews and conversations with prominent novelists, filmmakers, artists, and film and television directors and actors as they trace the Gothic mode across three centuries, from Mary Shelley’s Frankenstein, through H.P. Lovecraft, to today’s science fiction, goth, and steampunk culture. H. P. Lovecraft, Stephen King, Ray Bradbury, Robert (Psycho) Bloch, Chris (The Polar Express) Van Allsburg, Maurice Sendak, Gahan Wilson, Ray Harryhausen, Christopher Reeve, Greg Bear, William Shatner, and many more share their worlds of imagination and terror.
