What kind of man would write a novel about Nazi leprechauns lurking in an Irish castle that’s been turned into a bed and breakfast?” he says, citing John Christopher’s 1966 book The Little People.
I'm a big fan of Rogue Male, so I might have a look for it. Wikipedia mentions something called The Dance of the Dwarfs, but then links to what seems to be an irrelevant page. I don't know how much of Household's work is still in print. Anyway, I should let the thread get back on topic now.
Well, these are designed from the ground up to be "pulp" novels. They're created and defined by a preordained set of publisher requirements - style, length, content and very likely how quickly they could be written. I'm not sure the notion of "literary" enters into the equation. Yes, they're formulaic and undemanding - but that's the point. I'm not sure if those precursor classic authors or titles like Rebecca are even part of the same discussion.
I don't believe I've ever read any of Allingham's "Campion" mysteries -- have any of you folks tried them?
It seems one of them was marketed as a Gothic, The Fear Sign:
Marvel comics' Jim Steranko stopped doing Nick Fury, Agent of SHIELD, and painted this Gothic image:
The Warren comics were getting pretty trashy by then, by the way, though worse was to come.
