My friend has recently became obsessed with Gothic literature (especially Edgar Allan Poe) after studying it in school and is trying to brush it off on me. It's working, but I've been too busy lately to sit down and read anything, it's annoying. Last week my friends and I all spent 45 minutes reading E.A.P. poems to each other, much to the disgust of one of them.
Waiting for the copy of Carmilla to come in the next few days I grew up on Lovecraft and Poe, and try to write my urban fantasy stories with at least some of the depressing charm of the Gothic works in there.
Melmoth the Wanderer is my absolute favorite. Followed closely by The Monk, and The Private Memoirs and Confessions of a Justified Sinner. I don't much care for the more modern stuff, unless you count H P Lovecraft as gothic.
