“Gothic America” A Vintage Horror Collection

Gothic America is a collection of “Lucky 7” short vintage horror stories initially published before the 1900s. This vintage throwback is set to be a horrific gathering for your very own Halloween gathering. These stories are quick, witty, and easily shareable with children in the room.  Perhaps not in the 1800s, but today’s children are ready for these horrors as they are more subtle in nature.

They are not gore-heavy or littered with loud and grotesque imagery.  With the same friendly spirit that Washington Irving wrote The Legend of Sleepy Hollow, this collection is also intended to be shared in a group setting of all ages.  These stories are meant to be read aloud and in the dark.
