what would be some recommendations? I have read the basics, Dracula and Frankenstein, but I want to get more deeply into the genre and the dark aspects of it, I also real liked BloodBorne if that means anything

Though it would probably be considered one of "the basics," pic fucking related.

Also (though it's not sci-fi), for those who'd be in to southern gothic, I might suggest Flannery O'Connor; Wise Blood was a fucking trip.

Just finished it today. Great read. Orwell gift for the written word really shines here.
I especially like the political aspect. He remains stoic throughout the book and even warns people about any possible mistake he has made and his small, personal bias regarding the commentary; which is why I think it has a really constructive possibility to influence/challenge people's /pol/itical views.

It's a true story about his own experience as a militia member of the POUM during the spanish civil war. It's consistently exciting and it even has twists, something you'd expect from a fictional adventure novel. I've read 1984 before this book, and after reading you can evidently see the connections between his own first-hand experience and the dystopian story of Winston Smith.

I read 1984 when I was 14, quickly moved on to Homage to Catalonia, Down and Out in Paris and London and various essays. Death of an Elephant (I think that's what it's called) stuck with me the most I think.
Fucking great author.

I've abused too much alcohol to remember much of those books to be honest

I liked his essay on making the perfect cup of tea.
