PANEL FROM SPWF:
I was able to record LEANNA RENEE HIEBER enthusiastically discuss the history of the Gothic novel from the 18th century to present. It was a lot to fit in the hour, but she managed.
“We are a society. None of us are going it alone.” ~Leanna Renee Hieber on feminism
Hieber is the author of The Strangely Beautiful saga and the Magic Most Foul saga. She lovingly told about her real life convincing her parents that Goth is more than a phase and she can in fact make a living from it. She called out unhealthy famous literary relationships; and she didn’t sugarcoat problematic content that includes Lovecraft’s racism or Penny Dreadful’s tokenism.
ELEMENTS OF A GOTHIC NOVEL:
- Determining if there’s something paranormal going on;
- Psychological narrative (unreliable narrator).
