Remember those Gothic paperbacks of the 60s? Yes, the ones featuring the heroine in the white gown running from the creepy mansion. Well, we want her (or it could be him) back! We are seeking tales of Gothic horror. While we will consider different time periods, we are not fixed on only exploring an English Victorian country manor. We want a variety of settings. Can you do Gothic Brazil? Gothic Malaysia? How does Gothic take shape in the modern, blue-glass towers of Vancouver? Show us how the terror-stricken governess can morph into the computer programmer that discovers a deadly secret in Hong Kong. Or transport us to 18th century Moscow, where that candle burns bright – and deadly. We want Gothic tales reimagined for a modern audience. Take the classic Gothic and shake it up a bit. Surprise us. But most of all, scare us.
