Oscar Wilde is more than a name, more than an author. From precocious Oxford undergraduate to cause celebre of the West End of the 1890s, to infamous criminal, the proper name Wilde has become an event in the history of literature and culture. Taking Wilde seriously as a philosopher in his own right, Whiteley's groundbreaking book places his texts into their philosophical context in order to show how Wilde broke from his peers, and in particular from idealism, and challenges recent neo-historicist readings of Wilde which seem content to limit his irruptive power. Using the paradoxical concept of the simulacrum to resituate Wilde's work in relation to both his precursors and his contemporaries, Whiteley's study reads Wilde through Deleuze and postmodern philosophical commentary on the simulacrum. In a series of striking juxtapositions, Whiteley challenges us to rethink both Oscar Wilde's aesthetics and his philosophy, to take seriously both the man and the mask. His philosophy of masks is revealed to figure a truth of a different kind - the simulacra through which Wilde begins to develop and formulate a mature philosophy that constitutes an ethics of joy.

This statement was true when H. P. Lovecraft first wrote it at the beginning of the twentieth century, and it remains true at the beginning of the twenty-first century. The only thing that has changed is what is unknown. With each passing year, science, technology, and the march of time shine light into the craggy corners of the universe, making the fears of an earlier generation seem quaint. But this “light” creates its own shadows. The Best Horror of the Year, edited by Ellen Datlow, chronicles these shifting shadows. It is a catalog of terror, fear, and unpleasantness, as articulated by today’s most challenging and exciting writers. The best horror writers of today do the same thing that horror writers of a hundred years ago did. They tell good stories—stories that scare us. And when these writers tell really good stories that really scare us, Ellen Datlow notices. She’s been noticing for more than a quarter century. For twenty-one years, she coedited The Year’s Best Fantasy and Horror, and for the last six years, she’s edited this series. In addition to this monumental cataloging of the best, she has edited hundreds of other horror anthologies and won numerous awards, including the Hugo, Bram Stoker, and World Fantasy awards. More than any other editor or critic, Ellen Datlow has charted the shadowy abyss of horror fiction. Join

Gay men have a long, complicated history with the horror genre. While working behind-the-scenes to create some of the most iconic terrors on film (James Whale's Frankenstein, Bride of Frankenstein and The Invisible Man), they watched themselves portrayed on screen as sinister villains or as 'the best friend who dies first' victims. But in the last 20 years there has been a significant shift in the horror world courtesy of a growing number of out authors, screenwriters, directors and actors working to scare the crap out of you. Out In the Dark: Interviews with Gay Filmmakers, Actors and Authors introduces you to 31 of these men with interviews and insights into their work and their lives. From mainstream Hollywood filmmakers (Don Mancini, Child's Play and the Chucky films) to indie exploitation mainstays (Joshua Grannell aka Peaches Christ, All About Evil); prolific authors (Douglas Clegg, The Children's Hour) to small-press niche writers (Alan Kelly, Let Me Die a Woman); recently-out former teen idols (Wesley Eure, Land of the Lost and The Toolbox Murders) to gay indie staples (Matthew Montgomery, Socket and Pornography: A Thriller), Out In the Dark offers 31 unique perspectives on horror, being gay, and dozens of other subjects.
