So what books are Gothic?

Now that you know a little more about the definition of Gothic fiction and what kind of story it can be, let's dig into some actual reading options. First, a list of some of the classics: the novels that helped establish and shape the genre at its creation. Then, a list of more contemporary options that show where the genre has gone since then. If you really want to dig in to the Gothic, I recommend trying a few of the classics before moving on to a contemporary choice. Most of these are available at least as audiobooks, if not in multiple formats, so you could even listen to these books to add to the spook factor.
