31 Days of Halloween… with STEPHEN VOLK

October 24, 2016 The Librarian 0

Seven more sleeps till Halloween! Sorry, had to get that out of my system. As we approach the final week of 31 Days of Halloween, it is an immense pleasure to welcome Stephen Volk, “the BAFTA-winning writer of the notorious BBC TV ‘Hallowe’en hoax’ Ghostwatch,” to the Library. Volk’s other screenplays include The Awakening and Ken Russell’s Gothic, and the award-winning ITV drama series Afterlife. While North American audiences are likely to know him primarily from his television and film work mentioned above, he’s [READ MORE]

31 Days of Halloween… with JOHN SKIPP

October 23, 2016 The Librarian 0

Today’s second victim… ummm… I mean 31 Days of Halloween interviewee is author/editor/filmmaker John Skipp. Yes, you could call this an indie film two-fer, but John’s here for much more than just his exploits in movie-making. He’s one of the splatterpunk pioneers, co-authoring a number of gory horror novels with Craig Spector in the late ’80s and early ’90s. More recently, he’s released several books on his own (among them The Long Last Call and Conscience), co-written [READ MORE]

31 Days of Halloween… with LYNNE HANSEN

October 23, 2016 The Librarian 0

You may have noticed that we didn’t have a 31 Days of Halloween yesterday. That’s on me. Out-of-town signing, car trouble, errands, toddler – simply no chance to make it to the computer. Apologies! But hey, it means you get the double the awesomeness today. Starting with our conversation with author, screenwriter, filmmaker and super fabulous advocate for girls who want to make movies, Lynne Hansen. Her short film Chomp just took home another award this [READ MORE]

Today I welcome Sèphera Girón, another friend and colleague, into the Library for 31 Days of Halloween.

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.

We’re now into the last 13 days of our first annual 31 Days of Halloween feature. We hope you’ve had fun so far, and added a whole bunch of novels and short stories to your winter reading list.

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]

October 18, 2016 The Librarian 0

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. Her novel Mr. Suicide took home the Bram Stoker Award this year for Best First Novel. 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]

This installment of 31 Days of Halloween comes courtesy of Chris Marrs, who pens dark fiction with a strong literary undercurrent that often features strong characters fighting their worst fears. She adds two new reading recommendations to our growing list of frights. * * * 31 Days of Halloween… with Chris Marrs Before I dive into the questions, I would like to say thanks to Monica for having me as a part of the launch.
