Gothic Subterfuge!

Speaking of castles! I was checking my recommendation shelf at Square Books yesterday. Sales are down! But that's not the problem. Some unauthorized personage - a renegade Horace Walpole fan! - had tampered with the exquisitely balanced arrangement and stuffed in an extra book: THE CASTLE OF OTRANTO. Nothing against Horace Walpole! Don't worry, I took care of it.
