24. ‘A thrilling Gothic 2.0…’ The Times on Doctor Forrest

The London Times remains solidly behind a paywall round at my house but I’m advised it said the following in a write-up of The Possessions of Doctor Forrest, for which I am duly thankful:

‘A thrilling Gothic 2.0… Though 21st century fiction has so far been very attentive to the vampire, there haven’t been as many attempts to explore or update its literary parentage: the gloomy, diabolic, doppelganger-strewn terrain of Gothic literature that was so admired by Romantic poets and thrill-seeking readers in the late 18th and early 19th centuries. In his second novel, Richard T Kelly does just that, paying homage to a genre that he clearly knows intimately and loves dearly.’
