Scottish Women's Gothic and Fantastic Writing

This introductory chapter explains the theme of this book, which is about the gothic and fantastic writing of Scottish women. The book proposes an earlier date for the fantastic revival and begins its investigation in 1978, the publication date of Emma Tennant's The Bad Sister. It pioneers in-depth investigation of largely neglected contemporary texts including Alice Thompson's Pandora's Box and Ali Smith's Hotel World, and offers new readings of A. L. Kennedy's So I Am Glad and Kate Atkinson's Behind the Scenes at the Museum.

Keywords:   gothic writing, fantastic writing, Scottish women, fantastic revival, The Bad Sister, Pandoras Box, Hotel World, I Am Glad, Behind the Scenes
