More About Midwestern Gothic

"Don’t be fooled by our name. Gothic fiction is often defined as the inclusion of deeply flawed, often 'grotesque' characters in realistic (and, oftentimes unpleasant) settings/situations...Not every piece needs to be dark or twisted or full of despair." Rights revert to author upon publication.
