‘This collection fills a long-standing hiatus in Gothic scholarship. Lucidly organised into the four orders of posthuman Gothic, this remarkable volume reconfigures our understanding of the post/human condition. Organic, Undead, Evolving, Reimagined – Posthuman Gothic reveals how traditional primacies and normativities shift, blend and dissolve. Finally.’
-Professor Isabella van Elferen, Kingston University London
