LINKS.

VALANCOURT BOOKS

 

A newer publisher, that specializes in affordable reprints of 18th and early 19th century gothic novels and also supernatural fiction and thrillers of the 1890's. They've a very fine set of paperback reprints of extremely rare Richard Marsh novels and short story collections that are real bargains.

 

GASLIGHT

Gaslight, the oldest and probably best electronic text library online that specializes in Victorian & Edwardian genre fiction texts.

 

 GHOST STORIES OF M.R. JAMES

A good introduction to the British author and academic who may be the greatest ghost story writer of all time.

 

 GHOSTS AND SCHOLARS

FRIENDS OF ARTHUR MACHEN

A series of pages dedicated to the great Welsh horror author & fantasist by his leading fan society.

 

JEAN RAY

A page devoted to the prolific & very eccentric Belgian horror writer/fantasist (French language page).

EDGAR ALLAN POE MUSEUM

Located in Richmond, Virginia, just down the street from the former location of Poe's first major employer, The Southern Literary Messenger, this small but wonderful museum houses many rare relics and artifacts associated with the life of America's greatest author of the macabre.

 

THE GRAND GUIGNOL

The most comprehensive internet source for the French "theatre of terror," in business in the seedy Parisian Pigalle district from 1897-1962. The site contains bibliography, rare photos, and historical matter about the theatre and its most prominent authors.

 

LE BOUDOIR des GORGONES

 A GUIDE TO  SUPERNATURAL FICTION

 A good attempt to create a comprehensive database of biographical and bibliographical data for hundreds of supernatural fiction authors.

 

THE DAMFINOS

The official fan club for the greatest silent movie comedian, Buster Keaton.

 

ARBUCKLEMANIA

The first site dedicated to Roscoe "Fatty" Arbuckle, Buster Keaton's friend and mentor, and the most popular silent comedian at the American box office in the 1910's and early 1920's besides Charlie Chaplin.

 

RADIO DISMUKE

Streaming "internet radio" station that features music of the 1925-1935 era, "from frantic Charlestons danced to by a generation of flappers to sentimental ballads performed by the early crooners...from the hot jazz bands of the top Harlem nightclubs to the popular dance bands of the formative years of the swing and big band eras."

 

THE RED HOT JAZZ ARCHIVE

A massive collection of Real Audio sound files of pre-1930 "hot jazz" recordings remastered from the original 78's. Bix lives. ...And the Coon-Sanders Nighthawks still syncopate.

 

CENTER FOR THE STUDY OF SOUTHERN CULTURE

"The South's gonna rise again!"

(Well, not really, but I find this to be the best, most intelligent set of pages dealing with the culture of my part of the United States.  There's also a fair amount of e-text Southern literature right about here.)
