The Gothic Wanderer is a blog about all things Gothic – classic novels, movies, and how the Gothic continues to permeate our lives.
It was launched in August 2012 in conjunction with the release of Tyler R. Tichelaar’s new book The Gothic Wanderer: From Transgression to Redemption, Gothic Literature from 1794-present.
Tyler R. Tichelaar holds a Ph.D. in Literature from Western Michigan University where he wrote his dissertation on Gothic literature, a work that later evolved into his book The Gothic Wanderer: From Transgression to Redemption, Gothic Literature from 1794—present. He also holds Bachelor and Master’s Degrees in English from Northern Michigan University. He has lectured on writing and literature at Clemson University, the University of Wisconsin, and the University of London. Tyler is the regular guest host of Authors Access Internet Radio and the current President of the Upper Peninsula Publishers and Authors Association. He is the owner of his own publishing company Marquette Fiction and Superior Book Promotions, a professional book review, editing, and proofreading service.
Tyler is the author of numerous historical novels including The Marquette Trilogy, the award-winning Narrow Lives and most recently, a historical novel in which he played with Gothic themes, Spirit of the North: a paranormal romance. A lifelong lover of the Gothic in all its aspects, he is also fascinated with the Arthurian legend. Besides his scholarly work King Arthur’s Children, he is currently composing a series of novels that will intertwine the Arthurian legend with Gothic themes and characters.
