VICTORIA NELSON at Books Inc. Berkeley
Graduate professor of creative writing at Goddard College, Victoria Nelson shares Gothicka: Vampire Heroes, Human Gods, and the New Supernatural, a richly detailed exploration of the ways The Gothic, Romanticism's gritty older sibling, has flourished in myriad permutations since the eighteenth century that provides a sweeping examination of the influence Gothic fiction has had on popular culture. From H.P. Lovecraft to Dan Brown and Guillermo del Toro, this fascinatingly written criticism is an illuminating look into the mainstreaming of a spiritually driven supernaturalism.
