With sixteen journeys into terror (including the odd detour into a different sort of madness) Psychedelia Gothique adds a mind-altering dimension to the gothic tradition, opening the gates of perception, to demonstrate that fear is closer to the surface of our everyday reality than most of us ever suspect. All you need to do is shift your perceptions, just a little bit.
In addition to award-nominated stories like "Fourth Person Singular" and "Memory Games," Psychedelia Gothique contains six never-before-published tales, including "Masks of Flesh" and "Touching the Screams."
