Summary
"Wickedly funny . . . Ideal for babybats and elder goths who'll appreciate the wealth of reminders of the experiences that make up goth life" (NOW Magazine). A guidebook to the language of the most shadowy of subcultures, this work collects and defines more than 550 Gothic words and phrases. Compiled by an acclaimed Goth journalist and poet, this compendium provides insight into the unique vernacular of this fascinating community, describing in detail and with black humor the fashion, music, and lifestyle as well as sharing insider slang such as Babybat, Corp Goth, and the Gothic Two-Step. A Goth Band Family Tree and essential Goth listening, reading, and viewing recommendations are also included in this phantasmagorical work. "Including illustrations from the talented Gary Pullin, Encyclopedia Gothica is the essential Goth reference whether you're wondering who Sisters of Mercy are or what absinthe is (and why Marilyn Manson has his own brand of the green stuff)." —Geeks of Doom "Ladouceur is a rare gem of a commenter that has the ability not only to laugh at herself, but to be able to get you to laugh at yourself, too." —HoustonPress "Ladouceur has compiled a thorough and amusing encyclopedia about all-things-Goth . . . Whether you want to read about Nosferatu, Goth Juice or mall Goths you'll find brief and truly informative segments in Encyclopedia Gothica." —antiMusic "Ladouceur's humor is a welcome rarity in an oft-misunderstood subculture." —Maclean's "For those who continue to fear Goths, this book is a powerful antidote. Despite their spiky, menacing exterior, Encyclopedia Gothica details a culture as harmless and geeky as your average Star Wars fanboy or Kiss Army foot soldier." —National Post
