The Thirteenth Tale...

The Sisters Mortland...

The House at Riverton...

Ghostwalk...

Labyrinth...

The Shadow of the Wind...

Anybody else enjoying this new trend in modern "gothic" novels as much as I am? And can you recommend any other newer books along the same lines?

I loved the Thirteenth Tale.  Haven't read any of the others you mentioned, but I'll have to check them out.  I also have The Somnambulist by Jonathan Barnes and The Good Theif by Hannah Tinti on my TBR pile, both have good reviews and gothic overtones, so I hope they'll be good ones.

My favorite gothics are still the classics; Woman in White, Rebecca, House of Seven Gables etc.
