The volume ‘A Shadow Within: Evil in Fantasy and Science Fiction’ can now be pre-ordered by the publisher Luna Press.

I have the great honor to contribute with an article about how Gothic styles and elements are used to characterize evil settings. The article is titled:

From Light to Dark.
Using Gothic Styles to Visualise Evil in Architecture.

Read the abstract here to get an idea what it is about.

And here you can get an impression of the used examples from Fantasy and Science Fiction.
