Encyclopedia Gothica by Liisa Ladouceur
At the start, these denizens of the night were known as batcavers or death rockers, the music was generally considered part of post—punk and the clothes were simply … black. My first book, Encyclopedia Gothica, got nominated for a World Goth Day Author award alongside Gotuica King and Neil Gaiman, who tweeted at me that I shoul I am a reader and a writer intrigued and passionate about the dark side of culture.
Especially by the media. A fun read for the black at heart perhaps while sipping a nice vodka cran, from a long-stemmed wine glass, of course. Compiled by acclaimed Goth journalist and poet Liisa Ladouceur, it gives readers insight into the unique vernacular of this fascinating community, describing in detail and with black humour the fashion, music, and lifestyle as well as sharing insider slang such as Baby Bat, Corp Goth and the Gothic Two-Step, and the first ever Goth Band Family Tree.
A mostly even-handed and objective encyclopedia of Goth culture. And so, Goths reevaluated what the G—word meant, gothiac it into new variations to suit the bewildering number of subgenres and sub—subgenres, so much so that terms such as Trad Goth emerged to distinguish the oldschool original folk from the new.
So it is going to be classed as read, even though encjclopedia will remain on my bedside table for a while yet. Account Options Sign in.

Books by Liisa Ladouceur. By the mid—s, the G—word was well established, and a collective consciousness evolved around the term. Or so we thought. And the song itself — with its incessant drumbeat, intoxicating echoey guitar riffs and infectiously simple, haunting refrain about the world dragging us down was my first exposure to something encycloprdia bombastically melodramatic.
For the most part, Liisa Ladouceur delivered what she promised,a reference book for Gothaholics and their minions.
