Thoughts After Reading:

It wasn’t bad, it just goes over Supernatural Horror in Literature. It details authors, different stories, not too dry and an easy read.

For more nonfiction, go to Oscar Wilde’s Last Stand: Decadence, Conspiracy, and the Most Outrageous Trial of the Century

For more Edgar Allan Poe, go to The Tell-Tale Heart

For more Emily Bronte, go to The Madwoman Upstairs
