Taiwan’s Wenshan Review of Literature and Culture (appears to be free online) invites contributions to a special issue on Asian Gothic, scheduled to appear in December 2022. They seek “essays of 6,000-10,000 words to broaden our understanding of the Gothic in Asia”. Deadline for abstracts: 15th October 2021.

Suggested themes that may especially interest Lovecraftians:

* Gothic and Asian popular culture (manga, comics, anime, games, fashion, subcultures etc).
* Asian adaptations of western Gothic texts.
* Asian Gothic as part of a “globalgothic”.
* Genealogy of Gothic in an Asian context.
