Just in time for Halloween, the biggest names in horror fiction appear live to talk about the things that scare them. Expect parasites! Terrible jobs! And probably sharks!
Laird Barron – horror writer (The Croning, The Beautiful Thing That Awaits Us All) and three-time winner of the Shirley Jackson award.
Ellen Datlow – winner of four Hugo awards, three Bram Stoker awards, nine World Fantasy awards, two Shirley Jackson awards, and five Locus awards for her work as an editor.
Grady Hendrix – has won zero awards. But he did write a book (Horrorstör) about a haunted Ikea.
John Langan – horror writer (House of Windows, “A Season in Carcosa”) who, along with Laird Barron, was cited by Nic Pizzolatto as one of the literary influences on HBO’s True Detective.
Sarah Langan – horror writer (Audrey’s Door, The Lost) who has won the Bram Stoker award three times for her novels.
JT Petty – horror movie director whose films such as S&Man, The Burrowers, and Hellbenders have played around the world.
No one knows more about horror than this line-up of lunatics, and now they reveal the things that make them break out in a cold sweat.
