If gothic fiction is usually associated with the 19th century, then two British authors have brought the genre bang up to date. Richard T Kelly’s novel The Possessions of Doctor Forrest and Kevin MacNeil’s A Method Actor’s Guide to Jekyll and Hyde use the classic gothic rejection of rationality to craft contemporary stories that are paranoid, deliciously dark, sometimes erotically charged and often downright terrifying.
