Gothic Book Club: Oct 31.

No, I did not forget the Gothic Book Club. Some other stuff came up. We’ll start Oct. 31 (because that’s creepy) and then meet on the first of every month in the Cherry Forums Gothic Book Club thread. The first nine months schedule is below, and then along about month six when we have a firm grasp of what we’re doing, we’ll choose the last three. Or four. Whatever.

The books are:

1. Intro to Course, Mysteries of Udolpho, Radcliffe (1794)
2. Northanger Abbey, Austen (1818)
3. The Fall of the House of Usher, Poe (1839) [Link is to book of short stories that “Usher” appeared in.]
4. Jane Eyre, Bronte (1847)
5. The Turn of the Screw, James (1898)
6. The Circular Staircase, Rinehart (1908)
7. Rebecca, DuMaurier (1938)
8. Nine Coaches Waiting, Stewart (1958)
