In 1831, The Hunchback of Notre Dame was published. Even though this book is never included in the genre, I see this book as one of the best Gothic novels. Hugo was a brilliant writer, and this is my favorite of his books.
I felt like the Hunchback through out middle and high school, and still from time to time identify with him. I have lived as an outcast and tend to gravitate to them.
My name is C.E. Dorsett, and I am a scifi/fantasy writer. I have written the books Shine Like Thunder and The Chain, just to name a couple. I am really a builder of worlds from the wuxia inspired, scifi setting Our Solemn Hour to the dark fantasy of Dragons of Night. My writing is influenced by writers like H. P. Lovecraft, Charlaine Harris, Alice Hoffman, Armistead Maupin, Frank Herbert, E E Doc Smith and Robert E Howard. I love to tell stories and talk with my readers.
