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 Charlie, but if your looking for my work, I go by C. E. Dorsett. I write scifi, fantasy, and a touch of horror. I like to play with gothic, steampunk, decopunk, epic fantasy, and wuxia. I love to tell stories and talk about books, movies, series, and music.
