Canadian Gothic? From the land of the polite and the national obsession with curling? You bet! Although there have been American and British collections in New Gothic writing, this is the first collection with Canadian writers only.

From Our Editors

Fresh Blood: New Canadian Gothic Fiction is the first collection of exclusively Canadian gothic writers. Edited by Eric Henderson and Madeline Sonik, the stories in Fresh Blood are an unnerving and varied assortment. In Kenneth J. Harvey's Into the Places of Those Lost, a man's sexual fantasy becomes a frightening, hallucinatory embrace of what seems to be the ghost of his dead wife. Lurking behind a darkly humorous story of teenage rebellion, Thea Caplan's Touch is a story of abandonment and a family falling apart.
