Exotic Gothic 5 will be released this month and is currently available for pre-order. It was edited by the wonderful Danel Olson, scholar of all things Gothic, for PS Publishing, the UK’s foremost specialist genre publisher. Volume 1 features the first ever English translation of Georges-Olivier Châteaureynaud’s story “The Open Mirror.” This first appeared as one of a triptych of stories about writer’s residencies that appeared as a chapbook in France. The title story from this chapbook, “Final Residence,” was published last summer in Subtropics. Among his most recent stories, neither of these are available in the collection A Life on Paper from Small Beer Press.

As with most PS books, this is a deluxe jacketed hardcover edition with a print run of 300 (numbered 201-500); 200 special slipcased two-book sets numbered 1-200 are also available.

This year, Olson has taken his series has gone farther than ever before to find authors who evolve the Gothic genre: the twenty-six stories, fully half of which are by women, represent eleven countries.
