Gothic Stories Master Post 2021 #SomethingWickedFall

This is the master post for Gothic books or short stories read during Something Wicked Fall. I will be updating this post with my thoughts on stories I've read during the event. Look for the link in the menu above (Gothic Stories 2021).

I have lined up a selection of works and collections by classic authors considered writers of Gothic horror/fiction. I will be picking and choosing from works by M.R. James, Algernon Blackwood, and from this Project Gutenberg collection of works by various authors, Black Spirits and White: A Book of Ghost Stories. I'm also considering The Witch of Ravensworth by George Brewer, The House on the Borderland by William Hope Hodgson, and The Haunted House by Walter Hubbell. This will be time permitting, of course. Oh, and I am currently reading the short story, Jerusalem's Lot by Stephen King (from his collection, Night Shift), which is the basis for the EPIX streaming series, the very Gothic, Chapelwaite. It is excellent!

Please share what you've read/your thoughts on what you've read in the comments, or share a link to your blog post.

If you continue reading Gothic stories into October, please feel free to share in the comments. I'll keep the tab in the blog menu.

  1. "Plumage" by Nadine Rodriguez was my Deal Me In pick this week. I've always been intrigued by the role of servants and caretakers in Gothic stories. "Plumage" offers a very modern take. Can be read at:

  2. I ended up reading "Jerusalem's Lot" on a whim after checking Night Shift out for "Gray Matter" (was looking for creepy fungus stories). Chapelwaite looks so good, but I don't have an applicable service at the moment. (Always the way for me...)

    1. I am so behind on everything. Haven't had much chance for any other reading because I'm trying to catch up on Les Miserables (we're reading it for the last five months of 2021 for my 1000 Books Project). I am currently reading Jerusalem's Lot. I've been watching Chapelwaite. I think it's really good.
