This title situates Carmilla within its Irish Cultural milieu and treats the text as self-standing rather than as a precursor to Dracula. Unlike other collections of Gothic literature, Costello-Sullivan's work focuses solely on Carmilla.
A selection of Repeater authors choose their favourite horror stories for this new anthology, with each writing a critical introduction for the story of their choice. Edited by novelist and Repeater publisher Tariq Goddard and horror philosopher Eugene Thacker, The Repeater Book of the Occult is a new anthology of horror stories that explores the ever-shifting boundaries between the natural and supernatural, between the real and the unreal. As the editors note, In the grey zone between what appears and what is, lies horror. But horror writing is also a certain disposition, a way of thinking based on a suspicion regarding the world as it is given to us, and a doubt regarding the accepted ways of explaining that world to us - and for us. The Repeater Book of the Occult includes introductions by Repeater authors such as Leila Taylor, Carl Neville, Rhian E Jones, and Elvia Wilk, and features horror classics by Algernon Blackwood, Charlotte Perkins Gilman, and Edgar Allan Poe, as well as forgotten gems by authors such as W.W. Jacobs, Mark Twain, and Sheridan Le Fanu.
