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. The term "New Gothic" refers to tales told in the context of our modern world. These tales will often take characters, complacent in how their world works, and throw them a curve so things are not as they seem.

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.
