Welcome to the Love in the House of the Seven Gables project: a loosely connected series of blogs and websites dedicated to reviving public interest in Nathaniel Hawthorne's 1851 novel The House of the Seven Gables and its various manifestations in American culture. The LitHot7G Project examines the legacy of Hawthorne's novel, extends his gothic worlds through new fiction, and collects miscellaneous Hawthorniana. We are a cult favorite among the academia/horror and post-academia/post-horror communities.

Such Beauty Awaits You. We have such sights to show you.
