MEDIA REVIEWS

"Baker's assured and nuanced reading of a huge sweep of contemporary Scottish Gothic writing serves as not only an excellent introduction to the state of this rich literary field, but also as a powerful piece of scholarship ... . Dealing with themes as grand as time, subjectivity, community and the boundaries that demarcate and limit our experiences of the world, this work reveals the strangeness, depth and significance of Scottish writing and helps illuminate its power in unexpected new ways." (Jonathan Greenaway, Gothic Studies, Vol. 19 (1), May, 2017)

"Contemporary Scottish Gothic is a well-researched and written work that comments on emerging trends in an ever-growing field. ... Scholars whose work focuses on experimental or metafictional works may also find the text useful, alongside those with an interest in contemporary trends in the gothic genre." (Daniel Southward, The Irish Journal of Gothic and Horror Studies, Vol. 16, 2017)

"Baker's new text Contemporary Scottish Gothic: Mourning, Authenticity, Tradition stands as the first booklength critical study of contemporary Scottish Gothic fiction and serves to nourish this otherwise barren critical landscape." - The Gothic Imagination, 2015
