Today the Library is thrilled to welcome another long-time friend and colleague to our 31 Days of Halloween discussions: Brian J. Showers, who just successfully pulled off the inaugural edition of the Dublin Ghost Story Festival.

In Case You Missed It: Dine with HANNIBAL

October 19, 2016 The Librarian 0

Cookbooks aren’t really the domain of the Library; sure, we like food as much as the next person but, to be completely honest, The Librarian is kind of a lousy cook. That said, if there’s a cookbook we can get behind, it’s Feeding Hannibal:  A Connoisseur’s Cookbook (by Janice Poon). No, it doesn’t feature recipes made with real human parts. Sheesh, you really had to ask? Instead, we’re treated to a series of “easy-to-follow recipes [READ MORE]

If you are one of those folks who feels we need more women writing extreme horror (we do!), then you should already be aware of – and reading – the work of Nicole Cushing.

And her other releases have garnered quite a bit of attention as well; they include the Stoker-nominated short story collection The Mirrors and three stand-alone novellas (including the [READ MORE]

31 Days of Halloween… with LOREN RHOADS

October 14, 2016 The Librarian 0

Way back before I worked in horror, I became aware of Loren Rhoads through her fascinating magazine Morbid Curiosity, which I regularly sought out at my local Tower Records. Sadly, Morbid Curiosity like that Tower Records store is no more, but the curious-minded can still pick up its book version, Morbid Curiosity Cures the Blues. In recent years, Loren has turned her attention to cemeteries (in travelogue-style pieces) and fiction. She’s the co-author (with Brian Thomas) of [READ MORE]

October 13, 2016 The Librarian 0

Here at the Library we’ve always had a huge, soft, dark spot on our hearts for young adult horror. That might be because I grew up in the years before it became the gigantic industry it is today, or it might be because when it comes my fiction-writing heart, YA is my jam. But whatever the case, the Library fully endorses and champions teen (and children’s) terror tomes. Today, we welcome our first YA author [READ MORE]
