A cumulative supplement to Guide to the Gothic (Scarecrow Press, 1984) and Guide to the Gothic II (Scarecrow Press, 1995), Guide to the Gothic III offers researchers and students at any level a comprehensive bibliographical survey of Gothic scholarship and criticism of the 20th and 21st centuries. Over 1,600 new annotated entries covering 1993-2003 are included, along with 4,055 shortened entries from the previous two volumes. New individual author studies on Anne Rice and Angela Carter are included, as well as special sections on Gothic Chapbooks, Bluebooks, and Shilling Shockers, Pre-Gothicism and Graveyard Verse, Classical English Authors and the Gothic, Gothic Revival Architecture, the Doppelganger in Gothic literature, and Anthologies and Collections of Gothic Fiction. A new section on teaching gothic fiction with TV and audiovisual materials is also included. Reflecting the global nature of contemporary Gothic studies, other special features include sections on French, German, Russian, Spanish, Portuguese, Italian, Norwegian, Danish, Swedish, Japanese, Australian, and Indian/Pakistani Gothic fiction. Readers are directed to pertinent websites and internet resources on authors and special subject areas. Two comprehensive indexes are included to facilitate searching. This impressive reference source proves that the genre of gothic fiction is not frozen in time, but rather is expanding exponetially across cultures, nations, and historical periods, making this a requisite addition to any academic library collection."
