The Emma Press Anthology of Contemporary Gothic Verse is haunting, romantic, and full of dark doorways and strange spaces which readers will get thoroughly lost in. It’s a hand in a velvet glove, ready to grasp you by the elbow and lead you through an array of ravishing and heart-racing encounters.

This anthology engages deeply and playfully with the rich and unsettling tradition of gothic literature from which these poems emerge, and updates it for a 21st-century readership. The featured poets twist traditional stories, set the rule books on fire, and know that to truly surprise and unnerve, you may have to traverse some wild, remote places…

With poems from Elaine Baker, Charlotte Begg, Sue Burge, Cat Campbell, Kitty Coles, Cathleen Allyn Conway, Charlotte Eichler, Scott Elder, Suzanna Fitzpatrick, Angela Gardner, Caroline Hammond, Eva Isherwood-Wallace, David Keyworth, Anna Kisby, Alex Albatross, Clare O’Brien, Jenny Pagdin, Angela Readman, Sofía Rhei, Lawrence Schimel, Jill Sharp, Lajos Szórádi, Hilary Watson, Anna Woodford, Pauline Yarwood and Richard Yoder.
