The Penny Dreadful Blues

Penny Dreadful has wrapped up, which may have left you bereft and in mourning. It's okay, we can get through this together. Below are some suggestions for other avenues to explore now that you have been deprived of your exquisite Gothic Victoriana fix.

If you liked the Dracula plot line...

...then give Kim Newman's Anno Dracula or Richard Marsh's 
The Beetle a try.

* * *

If you liked Ethan's Wild West adventures...

...take a look at Molly Tanzer's Vermillion or Witchfinder: Lost and Gone Forever.

* * *

If you liked the plot between Frankenstein and Jekyll to science Lily into submission... really ought to read Arthur Machen's stories "The Inmost Light" and "The Great God Pan."

* * *

If you liked Lily's intersectional murder-feminism...'re ready for the one-two punch of Dr Jekyll Sister Hyde and The Hands of the Ripper.

* * *

If you liked Vanessa's foray in the world of alienism...

...then pick-up Patrick McGrath's Asylum or John Harwood's 
The Asylum

* * *

If you liked the vampire slaying action of Catriona Hartdegen... might be time to revisit Buffy the Vampire Slayer or Abraham Lincoln: Vampire Hunter.

* * *

If you liked the idea of monsters redeemed...

...maybe Tanith Lee's Darkness, I or Caitlin R. Kiernan's Silk will be your jam.
