The latest issue of Postscripts is now available for pre-order from PS Publishing. This bumper anthology – Postscripts #28/29 – is entitled Exotic Gothic 4 and edited by guest editor Danel Olson. Olson explains:
“In 2006, I floated a concept I created called Exotic Gothic to over seventy publishers around the world. It was an experiment in growing neo-Gothic stories: to keep one or more traditional tropes of the old genre in each new story, but add much thatâ€™s culturally different, and set them all outside of their original birthlands of the UK, Germany, and France. Since then the series has had four volumes, the first three from Ash-Tree Press of Canada (which with regret was unable to produce the fourth due to unforeseen personal commitments and time constraints), and the current from Englandâ€™s PS Publishing (whose name to carry the series was suggested by many of the writers within this all-new collection). Exotic Gothic 2 was a Shirley Jackson Award Finalist, and Exotic Gothic 3 a Shirley Jackson and World Fantasy Award Finalist. Many of the seriesâ€™ harrowing and sensual tales now reappear the following year in Best Of.. and themed collections. PS presents an all-new Exotic Gothic 5 in 2013.”
The latest Exotic Gothic volume contains stories from twenty-five of todayâ€™s finest speculative fiction writers, including: Adam Nevill, Kaaron Warren, Reggie Oliver, Simon Kurt Unsworth, Steve Rasnic Tem, Terry Dowling, Anna Taborska and Stephen Volk.
