Ten top gothic novels

Lynne Truss is the author of Eats, Shoots & Leaves, Cat Out of Hell, the newly released The Lunar Cats, and other books. One of her top ten gothic novels, as shared at the Guardian:
Tales of Terror and Mystery by Sir Arthur Conan Doyle

My edition of these stories is a gaudily-covered reprint of an original edition of 1922. However, it does contain a quite scary story about a Brazilian cat, in which we find the excellent description: “One stroke of that huge paw tore off my calf as a shaving of wood curls off before a plane.”
Read about another entry on the list.
