Penny Dreadful

Into Penny Dreadful?

More here.

Aka Dime Novels in North America.

They appeared in England in the 1830s but I came across a type of 'dreadful' dating as far back as 1797 in Germany with Rinaldo Rinaldini: The Robber Captain by Christian August Vulpius.

I think I'm gonna investigate this writing genre more moving forward.

  1. I can't say I'm really "in to" Penny Dreadful, though I do like some of her stuff. Hasn't she moved on to classical music and literary novels after years of punk rock and horror fiction?
