American Sypathetic and Gothic Lit

Hi, I have been lurking on here for a while. I am a Early American Literature student at Southern Illinois University, Carbondale.

I want to do a study of 18th and early 19 C. fiction this summer. Here is what I have so far,

Charles Brockden Brown – Arthur Mervyn
Charles Brockden Brown – Ormond
John Neal – Logan
Isaac Mitchell – The Asylum or Alonzo and Melissa
Foster – Coquette
William Hill Brown - The Power of Sympathy
J. Hector St. John de Crevecoeur – Letters of an American Farmer
Gilbert Imlay - The Emigrants
Samuel Jackson – Emma Corbertt
Sarah Wentworth Morton - Ouabi: or The Virtues of Nature

I know that some of these are late, but I am trying to keep them as early as possible. Does anyone have any recommendations (besides the obvious--more Brown, or Charlotte Temple)?

Thanks to anyone with suggestions.
