"Um jantar muito original", de Alexander Search: a ficção pessoana entre mistério, horror e fantástico (Flavio García)

"Alexander Search, heterônimo precoce e de curta existência no universo da heteronímia pessoana, escreveu poemas e o conto Um jantar muito original – datado de 1907 –, em língua inglesa, sob influências do período em que o escritor, ainda jovem, viveu na África do Sul. Foram produto de sua admiração pela literatura anglófona Oitocentista e pela obra de Edgar Allan Poe. O conto apresenta elementos de mistério, horror e do fantástico, podendo ser lido nos (sem) limites das vertentes da literatura fantástica Novecentista, principalmente sob as visões mais contemporâneas da crítica, posteriores a Todorov (Introdução à Literatura Fantástica, 1970).”

French Gothic novel The Mirror of True Events - The British Library

French Gothic novel The Mirror of True Events - The British Library | Gothic Literature | Scoop.it

François Félix Nogaret’s story of a young woman being asked to make a choice between six automata (mechanical figures) brings together technology and political allegory with a number of references to pre-revolutionary France. Automata were popular in France, both as extremely complicated toys for the wealthy, and as public spectacles. In the story the favoured inventors are two who create automata which go beyond the human/machine boundary. The first is a mechanical flautist who plays a tune so ravishing that the young woman faints – the inventor’s name is Wak-wik-vauk-on-son-frankésteïn (p. 42, shortened to Frankésteïn); this name includes a reference to a famous automata maker Vaucanson, as well as a name very close to the creator of the living being in Mary Shelley’s Frankenstein.

Kodoku Interview: A Lovecraftian Love Letter to PS4/Vita Players « GamingBolt.com: Video Game News, Reviews, Previews and Blog | Gothic Literature | Scoop.it

Most horror games present a threat that you’re at least marginally aware of to oppose you. Some games throw biohazards, others chuck zombies but rare is the horror title that relies on menacingly unknown entities to hunt you down. We saw this in Red Barrels’ Outlast and now Carnivore Studio’s Kodoku is looking to bring an H.P. Lovecraft-inspired horror adventure to the PS4 and PlayStation Vita. Set on a Japanese island, you’ll need to survive against creatures inspired by mythology and lore who are looking to wear your hide for a hat.
