Feb 25, 2014 No Comments by

The horror genre is a big tent.  It’s dark, entombed in cobwebs and inhabited by all manner of nightmarish entities, but there’s a lot of room.  The people that make their bones creating works of horror—the ones who reside inside the tent—they’re an eclectic bunch.  Dynamic.  Still, a majority of horror creators and their fans […]

From the darkness has curiosity ever reached out and struck you?  Has it caused you to wonder about your favorite genre writers and what’s on their bookshelves?  It’s reached out and struck me.  Do they have some classic pulp detective novels?  What about graphic novel collections?  Maybe the severed head of the poor unfortunate soul […]
