Once again Tom Pomplun has produced a wonderful volume of classic literature in a form that is both visually satisfying and entertaining. Gothic Classics Volume Fourteen starts off with a strange little poem by none other than Jane Austen, illustrated by Molly Kiely -- the sharp witticism is not lost in either the poem or by the art -- while the artwork does add a bit of drollery. Then we're off to some of the true classics of Gothic literature: Carmilla, The Mysteries of Udolpho, "The Oval Portrait", Northanger Abbey, and "At the Gate".

From official release/information:

Product Description: Gothic Classics presents Ann Radcliffe's archetypal gothic novel "The Mysteries of Udopho," adapted by Antonella Caputo and Carlo Vergara. Plus: Jane Austen's gothic parody "Northanger Abbey" by Trina Robbins and Anne Timmons; and Poe's "The Oval Portrait" by Malaysian illustrator Leong Wan Kok. Also "At the Gate," a canine ghost story by Myla Jo Closser, illustrated by Shary Flenniken, and J. Sheridan Le Fanu's great vampire tale "Carmilla," by Rod Lott and Lisa K. Weber. With a dramatic cover painting from "Carmilla" by Lisa K. Weber.
