Read full description of the books Encyclopedia Gothica:A guidebook to the language of the most shadowy of subcultures, this work collects and defines more than 550 Gothic words and phrases. Compiled by an acclaimed Goth journalist and poet, this compendium provides insight into the unique vernacular of this fascinating community, describing in detail and with black humor the fashion, music, and lifestyle as well as sharing insider slang such as Baby Bat, Corp Goth, and the Gothic Two-Step. A Goth Band Family Tree and essential Goth listening, reading, and viewing recommendations are also included in this phantasmagorical work.
Read information about the authorI am a reader and a writer intrigued and passionate about the dark side of culture.
As a professional journalist I've written about vampires and horror, music and the arts for newspapers, websites and magazines, and worked in film, radio and TV. My first book, Encyclopedia Gothica, got nominated for a World Goth Day Author award alongside Stephen King and Neil Gaiman, who tweeted at me that I should have won. That was pretty great. My second book, How to Kill a Vampire: Fangs in Folklore, Film and Fiction, is out now from ECW Press.
I like arcane words, dead things, asking and answering questions.
