Acknowledgements

I would like to thank Andy Mousley and Martin Halliwell for inviting me to write this book and for their helpful editorial advice. I would also like to thank my colleagues in English at the University of Glamorgan who enabled me to take a sabbatical from teaching during the spring term of 2006, in which much of the book was written. Thanks to Diana Wallace for arranging this, and to Martin Willis and Hilary George who took over my teaching. Also, thanks to my colleagues on the Senior Management Team for enabling me to arrange meetings in a way that optimised research time. I would also like to thank a number of people who commented on drafts of various parts of this book, especially Professor Benjamin Fisher, Professor Charles Crow, Professor William Hughes, my colleague Professor Richard J. Hand, and Ian Scoones.

My thinking on the Gothic has been shaped over the years by my teaching of it. So special thanks are due to the undergraduates I have taught and to the students taking the MA in Gothic Studies at Glamorgan. In particular I would like to thank Tracy Edmunds for allowing me to reproduce her essay.

Some sections of my reading of Kostova’s The Historian in Chapter 5 have been published in my ‘The Limits of Neo-Victorian History: Elizabeth Kostova’s The Historian and The Swan Thieves’ in Neo-Victorian Gothic, edited by Marie-Luise Kohlke and Christian Gutleben (Rodopi, 2012) and is reprinted by kind permission.

Finally, and as always, I would like to thank my wife, Joanne Benson, for her love, support, and tolerance throughout the writing of this book.
