About Wilted Pages

Wilted Pages is a new Dark Academia anthology from Shortwave Publishing that takes its inspirations from works such as The Secret History by Donna Tartt, Never Let Me Go by Kazuo Ishiguro, Mexican Gothic by Silvia Moreno-Garcia, Catherine House by Elisabeth Thomas, and The Bone Weaver’s Orchard by Sarah Read.

Gloomy buildings, secret societies, futuristic boarding schools, gothic yet modern aesthetics, and occult learning are just some of the pleasures to be found in this subgenre.
