Hello, I'm new to this site ( I joined a while ago but haven't been back since signing on) so my apologies if this is not the appropriate site for my question. My mother was a huge fan of gothic romance novels ( similar to wuthering heights and Jane eyre in style ) and I've got hundreds of paperbacks in storage (best known authors are Victoria Holt and Mary Stewart if my meemory serves). I'd like to send them to a good home where someone will enjoy them as much as my mother did. My sister and nieces are not fans of this genre and although I'm up to my eyeballs in stacks of books I have yet to throw out a book in my life ( a Great sin in my value system). Many of the books are out of print and some don't even register on an amazon search so listing them one by one would not seem too efficient. If anyone is interested I can provide the titles and authors for a hundred or so. You can e-mail me at: Ignatiuso2@aol.com Best Wishes and good reading I'm not looking for any credits or any postage - I just want someone who will enjoy them.

I read all those gothic authors years ago.  You might consider taking some to local nursing homes or shelters, they are always looking for book donations.

I'd consider some of Robin Schone's stuff borderline gothic . . and quite erotic too if you like that ;-)

 

Oops misread the question.
