LOST SOULS OF HORROR AND THE GOTHIC
Newly published by McFarland, this collection of 54 biographical essays examines many overlooked and underrated figures who have played a role in the ever expanding world of horror and gothic entertainment. The contributors push the boundaries of how we define these terms, bringing into the discussion such diverse figures as singer-songwriter Tom Waits, occultist Dion Fortune, author Charles Beaumont, historian and bishop Gregory of Tours and video game designer Shinji Mikami. Foreword by Sir Christopher Frayling.
My own contribution to the book is an essay on the mighty Jeff Lieberman, director of Squirm!
