This year the Series has gone farther distances than ever before to find authors who evolve the Gothic genre. Authors born in eleven countries contribute new fiction (or fiction never published in English) to the fifth in the Exotic Gothic serie twenty six stories in all, split into two volumes. A commitment was also made early to encourage gender balance in the anthology. After reading with shock how women writers are severely underrepresented in many genre anthologies the Editor asked, Why are we cheating ourselves and our readers in this way? And how do we face our daughters if we perpetuate that unfairness? Thirteen of the stories are written by women, and thirteen by men. It is with great satisfaction that PS Publishing now presents what may be the most involving and affecting storytelling yet to appear in the entire Gothic Quintet . . .

About the Author:

Danel Olson is an American professor of Gothic literature & film, and Shirley Jackson Award & World Fantasy Award-winning editor of a six volume original fiction print series, Exotic Gothic. His other edited works in print include 21st Century Gothic: Great Gothic Fiction Since 2000, as well as The Exorcist: Studies in the Horror Film and Stanley Kubrick's The Shining: Studies in the Horror Film. His forthcoming publication is Guillermo del Toro's The Devil's Backbone and Pan's Labyrinth: Studies in the Horror Film featuring new pre-production art from the Director never published before.

Review:

"... The series desires to remove the idea that Gothic literature exists solely in haunted mansions and dusty ruins over in the UK. What Olson also does with the series is to stop the assumption that the only people reading neo-Gothic stories are white kids.... The storytelling is brilliant and as varied as the settings. These anthologies challenge the way we conceptualize the Gothic." --Senior fiction reviewer Gail Brasie, Gothic Beauty magazine (Print, Fall 2014)

"[Though it] reaches into the colonial fear of native sexuality, ... Volume 2 [set in Asia, Africa, Australia, and Latin America] is less overtly erotic than Volume 1 [with settings of North America and Europe], but both collections are stunning ... and the horror is truly frightening. These are tales not to sicken, but to terrify the soul. They are stories about us. About our neighbors. About the darkest shadows deep inside. This is a series that devours you." --Drake MorganHorror Novel Reviews (Web, 2013)

"Edited by Danel Olson (PS Publishing), [the Series] has doubled its size to twenty-six stories, split between two volumes. There are notable stories by Nick Antosca, Kola Boof, Terry Dowling, Lucy Taylor, Reggie Oliver, Sheri Holman, Deborah Noyes, John Llewellyn Probert, and Anna Taborska." --Ellen DatlowThe Best Horror of the Year, Volume Six (Print, 2014)

Featured in "British Forthcoming Books" and on "Recommended Reading List: 2013 Year in Review."--LOCUS magazine (Print, Feb. 2014, Dec. 2014)
