Latest Guest Blog Post

The dissertation I composed to get my degree in English Literature dealt with the concept that themes in horror change depending on what scares society in general, and the author in particular. I looked at Stephen King (terrified of spiders – as in IT) and Edgar Allan Poe (scared of being buried alive – hence numerous stories dealing with this) for my examples.

Today, though, I am taking a wider view and looking at what has scared us over the decades and how it’s been dealt with in horror fiction and films, over on Sonya Clark’s blog. Please click here and take a look.

This is a subject I can talk about with enthusiasm for a great length of time, and I am grateful to Sonya for letting me loose on her blog with it.
