Halloween is right around the corner. In recognition of this centuries old celebration, Librarians at The London Library have curated a display Gothic Literature for the Reading Room display cabinet. 

Comprising the likes of Horace Walpole's The Castle of Otranto (1796) and John Polidori's The Vampyre (1819), all the way up to Library member A.J West's The Spirit Engineer (2021), The London Library possesses virtually all the most significant works of Gothic fiction predating the turn of the 21st century, along with many lesser-know examples and many modern Gothic fiction works, too.
