It is not every day one finds Anne Rice and John Edgar Wideman, Peter Straub and Martin Amis, Joyce Carol Oates and Jeanette Winterson, Ruth Rendell and Kathy Acker all under the same roof. And yet here, the editors of this landmark anthology contend, these voices converge. They are all a part of the new gothic. Gone are the traditional dripping dungeons, gone are the wind-blasted heaths. Gothic terror has become interiorized, and now it is expressed through the daily perversities and madness of our modern lives.
