New Queer Horror Film and Television

Edited by Darren Elliott-Smith and John Edgar Browning

‘As everyday life begins to resemble a horror movie for more and more people, so horror genres have had to shift and change to keep pace with the grotesqueries of the quotidian. In this exciting new volume edited and curated in imaginative ways, queer horror takes centre stage. While LGBTQ+ people have long played the monster in the horror genre, we can now look at horror from the perspective of those relegated to the monstrous margins. Ranging between new queer readings of old texts and analyses of aesthetic ruptures, this anthology can claim to offer a definitive look at a genre that has neatly taken aim at normal life.’
- Professor Jack Halberstam, Columbia University

William Morgan

Eighteenth Century Actuary, Mathematician and Radical

Nicola Bruton Bennetts

‘William Morgan has long been recognised as one of the most important actuaries in the history of the profession. This well-researched biography tells the story of William the man beyond the actuary, revealing a person of remarkable dexterity, energy and talent – a scientifically-inquisitive natural philosopher; a liberal political activist; and a dedicated family man. It makes for a fascinating and inspiring read.’
- Craig Turnbull FIA, author of A History of British Actuarial Thought

Introducing the Medieval Ass

Kathryn L. Smithies

‘If the title seems to announce a narrow subject, Introducing The Medieval Ass offers a rich gallery of surprises from natural history to philosophy and literature. The cultural image of the ass proves to have a versatile history, which Smithies scrutinises in a well-researched, but easily readable study.’
- Professor Baudouin Van den Abeele, Université catholique de Louvain

Norah Borges

“A Smaller, More Perfect World”

Eamon McCarthy

‘Reading this book is like walking through an exhibition of Argentine and Spanish art during the first half of the twentieth century – but it seems different from the story you thought you knew, since you came in through the back door before the crowds arrived, and you now see the connections between Jorge Luis Borges and Guillermo de Torre, between the avant-garde magazines and García Lorca’s La Barraca, and you realise that the glue that held it all together was Norah Borges. A fascinating tour de force!’
- Professor Stephen M. Hart, University College London

Women’s Authorship and the Early Gothic

Legacies and Innovations

Edited by Kathleen Hudson

‘Women’s Authorship and the Early Gothic is an impressive testament to the diversity of early women’s gothic, painting a compelling picture of the perils and rewards of female rebellion and authorship. Often dismissed as derivative, women’s gothic is instead revealed as a creative dialogue, mingling historical darkness with Romantic optimism.’
- Dr Dara Downey, School of English, Trinity College Dublin

The Welsh Methodist Society

The Early Societies in South-west Wales 1737-1750

Eryn M. White

‘The transatlantic Evangelical revival of the eighteenth century had no greater impact than through Methodism in south-west Wales, the subject of this book. Eryn White perceptively shows how converted individuals were grafted into novel communities, the Methodist societies, which she analyses with exemplary thoroughness.’
- David Bebbington, Emeritus Professor of History, University of Stirling

Barry Island

The Making of a Seaside Playground, c.1790- c. 1965

Andy Croll

‘A pioneering and richly documented study that challenges many of our preconceptions of the development of Barry Island and of Welsh seaside resorts in general. It tells a story that is at one and the same time more complicated than previously imagined, but also richer and more rewarding. A pleasure to read, it is a book that no historian of the British seaside, or anyone interested in how resorts developed, will want to miss.’
- Emeritus Professor Peter Borsay, Aberystwyth University
