Format: Hardcover
This book is a must read for anyone who is fascinated by the rise of 'supernatural' creatures in popular culture, and what that means for religion (or spirituality, etc.) down the road. Ms. Nelson is particularly gifted in making the 'insider only' culture that makes up a lot of sf and fantasy accessible. Her writing is strong and effortless, making reading about very convoluted ideas an enjoyable experience.

Format: Hardcover Verified Purchase
Unlike her brilliant Secret Life of Puppets, which is worth five+ stars, Gothika is more of a systematic item-by-item survey of horror / fantasy / vampire / zombie books, films, TV series, etc. I can't think of any 'Gothik" (as she defines it) item she hasn't read and studied - hundreds of titles she writes intelligently about, and links together in terms of themes and influences. This book will be of great value as a reference for writers and others working in this area, but may not be of great interest to the general run of those interested in these genres as consumers.
