Gothic fiction, a subset of horror, is characterized by a prevailing mood of mystery and terror, and, typically, a romantic setting. It began in 18th-century England with Horace Walpole’s immensely successful Castle of Otranto (1765) and Ann Radcliffe’s Mysteries of Udolpho (1794), but contemporary authors, including Stephen King and Neil Gaiman, have continued the genre.
