Nineteenth-century ghost literature by women shows the Gothic becoming more experimental and subversive as its writers abandoned the stereotypical Gothic heroines of the past in order to create more realistic, middle-class characters (both living and dead, male and female) who rage against the limits imposed on them by the natural world. The ghosts of Female Gothic thereby become reflections of the social, sexual, economic and racial troubles of the living. Expanding the parameters of Female Gothic and moving it into the nineteenth and twentieth centuries allows us to recognise women’s ghost literature as a specific strain of the Female Gothic that began not with Ann Radcliffe, but with the Romantic Gothic ballads of women in the first decade of the nineteenth century.

When she unearths the bones of a young child, Beverly Vernon’s life is transformed in ways she never expected. Widowed Beverly Vernon, a displaced East Coast children’s book illustrator and mother of two childless adult daughters, is finding it difficult to settle in rural Florida. Filling her days by painting the portrait of a longed-for imaginary grandchild, she is struggling to find meaning in her life. But everything changes when she uncovers the bones of a young child in her backyard. A child who evidently died through violent means. Determined to find out who the child was and how and why they died, Beverly notices that the portrait she’s working on seems to change of its own accord – and that’s not the only unexplained phenomenon taking place within her home. Is she being haunted – or is she going mad? In her efforts to uncover the truth behind the bones, Beverly finds her relationship with her two daughters coming under threat, and her faith and beliefs tested to their very limit.

In her all-new supernatural thriller, bestselling indie horror author Ania Ahlborn asks: How far would you go for success? What would you be capable of if the promise of forever was real? With his marriage on the rocks and his life in shambles, washed-up true-crime writer Lucas Graham is desperate for a comeback, one more shot at the bestselling success he once enjoyed. His chance comes when he’s promised exclusive access to death row inmate Jeffrey Halcomb, the notorious cult leader and mass murderer who’s ready to break his silence after thirty years, and who contacted Lucas personally from his maximum-security cell. With nothing left to lose, Lucas leaves New York to live and work from the scene of the crime: a split-level farmhouse on a gray-sanded beach in Washington State whose foundation is steeped in the blood of Halcomb’s diviners—runaways who were drawn to his message of family, unity, and unconditional love. There, Lucas sets out to capture the real story of the departed faithful. Except that he’s not alone. For Jeffrey Halcomb promised his devout eternal life…and within these walls, they’re far from dead.

Als die neunzehnjährige Tina Rutherford verschwindet, ist jedem in Chabot, Mississippi klar, wer dafür verantwortlich ist. Denn 25 Jahre zuvor war schon die junge Cindy Walker nach einem Date mit dem Nachbarssohn Larry Ott spurlos verschwunden. Für das Verbrechen konnte Larry aus Mangel an Beweisen nie verurteilt werden, wurde aber fortan gemieden und lebte in ritualisierter Einsamkeit. Erneut unter Verdacht, ist sein Haus vermehrt Ziel betrunkener Rednecks; er wird angeschossen und der junge schwarze Constable Silas Jones mit den lästigen Ermittlungen betraut – eine gemeinsame Vergangenheit und ein dunkles Geheimnis verbinden ihn mit Larry. Schon Faulkner wusste, dass sich die Vergangenheit nicht beerdigen lässt, und in Franklins Südstaaten-Roman um Freundschaft, Verrat und Alltagsrassismus brechen alte Wunden auf und offenbaren, dass man, getrieben von Furcht und Feigheit, schlimme Fehler begehen kann.

Ein überwältigender New York-Roman Tief unten im Schacht liegt Ashley – sie ist tot – erst 24 Jahre alt - eine Leiche in einer verlassenen Lagerhalle Manhattans. Ein Unfall? Oder Selbstmord? Und was hat Cordova, der übermächtige Vater und besessene Filmemacher mit ihrem Tod zu tun? Der Schlüssel zum Geheimnis liegt in seinen magischen Filmen, die nach und nach zu einer Wirklichkeit werden, aus der es kein Entkommen gibt. Gnadenlos, packend und zuweilen verstörend ergründet Marisha Pessl die dunklen Seiten des Lebens. »Die amerikanische Nacht« ist ein literarisches MEISTERWERK.
