December will be magic

December has always made me think of the Kate Bush song “December Will be Magic Again.” And now, that she has released a concept record about snow, I suppose I will think of that. But today, am thinking it’s time to tell you about my public appearances from here until end of the year. It’s been a great trip this autumn getting out to promote the book, and I hope you’ll join me as it continues into the winter. Wherever you are, let’s make it magic.

  1. Hello,
    I just wanted to say I’ve been using Encyclopedia Gothica for a little while and I’ve found it to be very well put together, interesting and insightful. As a non-Goth looking in to a subculture, I found lots of answers to questions I’ve wondered for a long time. I guess I’m mentioning all this just to say thank you. Sorry if this comment should have been posted or sent somewhere else on the website.


    P.S. The cover sold me. Also keep doing what you do.

    1. Thank you Jack for the kind words. It was always my hope that non-Goths would pick up the book too. And you’re right, Gary’s cover is awesome. Happy reading! (Or sad reading, as you wish.)
