Whether the reader is new to the Supernatural family or has been with them since the beginning, they’re in for a wild and surprising ride with The Roads Not Taken. For the first time ever, you can make decisions alongside Sam and Dean Winchester in their quest to battle monsters, demons, and every Big Bad lurking in the darkest recesses of America’s small towns. Jump headfirst into your very own adventure and pick your cover story: will you be an FBI agent, reporter, or bikini inspector? Figure out which lead to follow. Decide whether to split up or stay together. Do you call Bobby Singer for help? And remember, the clock is ticking! If you make the wrong decision, another victim could meet a dark and gory death. Demons, spirits, and ghouls lurk around every corner, waiting to get the drop on Sam and Dean—and only by following all the clues, interviewing the right suspects, and making the right choices can you lead them to victory. This heart-pounding collection contains a series of four original stories, each with branching storylines and multiple endings, all based on the choices the reader makes.

The CW’s long-running series Supernatural follows the adventures of brothers Sam and Dean Winchester as they pursue the “family business” of hunting supernatural beings. Blending monster-of-the-week storylines with the unfolding saga of the brothers’ often troubled relationship, the show represents Gothic concerns of anxiety, the monstrous, family trauma and, of course, the supernatural. The lines between human and monster, good and evil, are blurred and individual identities and motivations resist easy categorization. This collection of new essays examines how the series both incorporates and complicates Gothic elements related to traditional tropes, storytelling, women and gender issues and monstrosity.

Bachelor Thesis from the year 2011 in the subject English Language and Literature Studies - Other, grade: 2,0, Technical University of Darmstadt (Institut für Sprach- und Literaturwissenschaft), language: English, abstract: Tales and narratives have appeared in different forms since the birth of mankind. It has all started with ancient cave paintings that have told stories to those who have found them. The next step has been the writing on stones, like the ten commandments of the holy Bible. The writing on paper has been a progression to the writing on stones and has until today become the most popular form of narrating and telling stories. During the last century, however, a new form of providing an audience with narratives has slowly arose, which has, until today, managed to become quite a competition to books: films and TV-series. While books are still the most popular medium for telling stories, TV-series and films have managed to create a steadily growing niche. This new possibility of telling stories with actors, sound, music and special effects has become more and more popular. While films always have to hope for a sequel, which depends on the gross the film has made, TV-series can and must focus on a narrative sequence from the beginning. It all starts and ends with seriality.

The late 1950s and early 1960s were the golden years of horror television. Anthology series such as Way Out and Great Ghost Tales, along with certain episodes of Twilight Zone and The Alfred Hitchcock Hour, were among the shows that consistently frightened a generation of television viewers. And perhaps the best of them all was Thriller, hosted by Boris Karloff. In Thriller the horror was gothic, with a darker, bleaker vision of life than its contemporaries. The show's origins and troubled history is first discussed here, followed by biographies of such key figures as producer William Frye, executive producer Hubbell Robinson, writers Robert Bloch and Donald S. Sanford, and Karloff. The episode guide covers all 67 installments, providing airdate, production credits, cast, plot synopses and critical evaluations.

In one of those rare books that allows us to see the world not as we've never seen it before, but as we see it daily without knowing, Victoria Nelson illuminates the deep but hidden attraction the supernatural still holds for a secular mainstream culture that forced the transcendental underground and firmly displaced wonder and awe with the forces of reason, materialism, and science. In a backward look at an era now drawing to a close, The Secret Life of Puppets describes a curious reversal in the roles of art and religion: where art and literature once took their content from religion, we came increasingly to seek religion, covertly, through art and entertainment. In a tour of Western culture that is at once exhilarating and alarming, Nelson shows us the distorted forms in which the spiritual resurfaced in high art but also, strikingly, in the mass culture of puppets, horror-fantasy literature, and cyborgs: from the works of Kleist, Poe, Musil, and Lovecraft to Philip K. Dick and virtual reality simulations. At the end of the millennium, discarding a convention of the demonized grotesque that endured three hundred years, a Demiurgic consciousness shaped in Late Antiquity is emerging anew to re-divinize the human as artists like Lars von Trier and Will Self reinvent Expressionism in forms familiar to our pre-Reformation ancestors. Here as never before, we see how pervasively but unwittingly, consuming art forms of the fantastic, we allow ourselves to believe.

Readings in Law and Popular Culture is the first book to bring together high quality research, with an emphasis on context, from key researchers working at the cutting-edge of both law and cultural disciplines. Fascinating and varied, the volume crosses many boundaries, dealing with areas as diverse as football-based computer games, Buffy the Vampire Slayer, digital sampling in the music industry, the films of Sidney Lumet, football hooliganism, and Enid Blyton. These topics are linked together through the key thread of the role of, or the absence of, law - therefore providing a snapshot of significant work in the burgeoning field of law and popular culture. Including important theoretical and truly innovative, relevant material, this contemporary text will enliven and inform a legal audience, and will also appeal to a much broader readership of people interested in this highly topical area.
