In Case You Missed It: JACK KETCHUM: MIXTAPE N° 434

October 13, 2016 The Librarian 0

This really cool item popped up on the the web last week and I haven’t seen it get a lot of attention, so welcome to our first installment of “In Case You Missed It,” where we spotlight something book-/author-related that has either fallen under the radar or just hasn’t gotten the attention we think it deserves. So, I know you’re wondering, what exactly is this “Jack Ketchum: Mixtape N° 434” we speak of? Well, it’s [READ MORE]

October 12, 2016 The Librarian 0

Up until now, we’ve been mixing a little introduction and a little biography for the intros to our 31 Days of Halloween interviews, but today we’re going to change it up a bit and just run our interviewee Hal Bodner’s bio as supplied to us. Why? Because it’s a great bio, and it seems like a sin to paraphrase it. Okay, here we go… Hal Bodner is a Bram Stoker Award nominated author, best known for his [READ MORE]

Colour the ZOMBIE ‘POCALYPSE today!

October 11, 2016 The Librarian 0

Colouring books for grown-ups have been all the rage these last few years, but it seems the trend is now starting to wriggle its way into the world of horror, as evidenced here by Uncle Glenny’s Zombie ‘Pocalypse by celebrated genre illustrator Glenn Chadbourne and Dave Hinchberger. “I love zombies,” writes “Uncle Glenny” in the book’s introduction. “I’ve loved them in all their many forms since I was a carpet crawler (or, ‘youngwun’ as they [READ MORE]

31 Days of Halloween… with GEMMA FILES

October 10, 2016 The Librarian 0

It’s Thanksgiving here in Canada and we at the Library are thankful for many things – good friends, good food, good health, good healthcare (forget that nonsense Trump spouted at last night’s debate) – but we should aim to keep things bookish, so let’s just say: Currently, we’re thankful for female horror writers and all those who work toward greater diversity in our genre, in general. Which brings us to today’s installment of 31 Days of [READ MORE]

31 Days of Halloween… with KEALAN PATRICK BURKE

October 9, 2016 The Librarian 0

Yesterday we ventured out of the Library in the search of some Halloween decorations. The Library can never be spooky enough, after all – and not just at Halloween! We were soon mortified to discover that the skeletons, pumpkins, witches and spiders were now sharing shelf space with, gasp, wait for it… Christmas! *insert screeching, head-spinning horror here* We fled back to the safety of the Library, stroked our pet snake, brewed a pot of coffee, and [READ MORE]

Lest you think our scary stories launch bash is a little North America-centric, allow me to tag in award-winning author and editor Lee Murray, who is based way, way across the pond in New Zealand. She brings some welcome lesser known works to our list of literary scares. * * * 31 Days of Halloween… with Lee Murray Describe a time when a scene in a horror novel really unnerved you or caused you to [READ MORE]

31 Days of Halloween… with MARIA ALEXANDER

October 7, 2016 The Librarian 0

It’s Friday! And it didn’t slip by on me this week. Since it’s always kind of dark here in the Library, the days have a tendency to blur together – I know, I know, get out more, stop getting lost in all the books. But, but, the to-be-read pile, so hulking, so threatening to crush me… Anyway, speaking of Friday and books, it’s also that day of the week where folks on social media (okay, Twitter mostly) [READ MORE]

31 Days of Halloween… with JESS PEACOCK

October 6, 2016 The Librarian 0

You’ll notice that the tagline of our site does not say “horror fiction.” That’s because here at the Library have an appreciation for non-fiction as well. Hell, we even like poetry. The good stuff anyway. But for today’s installment of 31 Days of Halloween, we’re pleased to add a more academic voice to the discussion. Jess Peacock is the author of Such a Dark Thing: Theology of the Vampire Narrative in Popular Culture from Wipf and [READ MORE]
