From absinthe to zombies, it’s the Encyclopedia Gothica!

“Wickedly funny . . . Ideal for babybats and elder goths who’ll appreciate the wealth of reminders of the experiences that make up goth life” — NOW Magazine

“Ladouceur is a rare gem of a commenter that has the ability not only to laugh at herself, but to be able to get you to laugh at yourself, too.” — Houston Press

“Including illustrations from the talented Gary Pullin, Encyclopedia Gothica is the essential Goth reference whether you’re wondering who Sisters of Mercy are or what absinthe is (and why Marilyn Manson has his own brand of the green stuff).” — Geeks of Doom

“Ladouceur’s humor is a welcome rarity in an oft-misunderstood subculture.” — Maclean’s

A guidebook to the language of the most shadowy of subcultures, this work collects and defines more than 550 Gothic words and phrases. Compiled by an acclaimed Goth journalist and poet, this compendium provides insight into the unique vernacular of this fascinating community, describing in detail and with black humor the fashion, music, and lifestyle as well as sharing insider slang such as Babybat, Corp Goth, and the Gothic Two-Step. A Goth Band Family Tree and essential Goth listening, reading, and viewing recommendations are also included in this phantasmagorical work.

Liisa Ladouceur is a music and unpopular culture journalist, a poet, and a Goth. She has examined the subculture for various publications, has been called upon as a recognized Goth expert for television like MuchMusic, CTV, TVO, and Newsworld, and hosted the sold-out Gothic Toronto literary event for the Luminato Festival. She is currently known as the Blood Spattered Guide music columnist for Rue Morgue magazine, the world’s leading publication on horror in art and culture, and also can be heard weekly on the all-horror podcast Rue Morgue Radio. She lives in Toronto, ON. Gary Pullin is the art director for Rue Morgue magazine, and his work can be seen at www.ghoulishgary.com. He lives in Toronto, ON.

“Ladouceur’s humour is a welcome rarity in an oft-misunderstood subculture.” — Maclean’s

“A thorough and amusing encyclopedia about all-things-Goth.” — AntiMusic

“Seriously smart without taking itself too seriously.” — NOW Magazine

“Ladouceur has compiled a thorough and amusing encyclopedia about all things Goth … Whether you want to read about Nosferatu, Goth Juice, or mall Goths, you’ll find brief and truly informative segments in Encyclopedia Gothica.” — antiMusic

“Ladouceur is a rare gem of a commenter that has the ability not only to laugh at herself, but to be able to get you to laugh at yourself, too.” — Houston Press
