[Women In Horror Month] – Jett

It was summer that year when he asked me to do it. Sprawled out in our bed naked, clammy and our hearts racing, we stared at the ceiling.

Lydian Faust (LF): How did Burdizzo Books get started? Em Dehaney (ED): Back in early 2016 I saw an open call for a Christmas themed anthology from a writer called Matthew Cash.

[Women In Horror Month] – Diversity and Women in Horror Month

Being part of a mostly marginalized group has its moments of extreme suck. You can take pride in being part of that group and still speak out about the suck. It doesn’t mean you don’t want to be part of the group (I like my tits, thank you very much) but that you want peopleContinue reading “[Women In Horror Month] – Diversity and Women in Horror Month”

[Women In Horror Month] – WOMEN REINVENTING DOMESTIC GOTHIC

There’s a long tradition in Gothic literature written by women; the idea of the home as a strange, uncanny and often dangerous space.

[Women In Horror Month] – Maria The Wanted and the Legacy of the Keepers

Maria is the vampire novel I didn’t even know I was waiting for. I love horror, but I got kind of vampired out some time ago. That’s because after a while, they all start to look the same.
