Gotta dig it when NPR loves on the horror.
NPR’s PG-13: Risky Reads, a series in which young authors discuss the mature books that steered their literary appetites from comics to classics, has featured a number of seminal genre works this summer.
Most recently, Victor LaValle shined on Clive Barker’s Books of Blood, with a special shout-out to “The Midnight Meat Train.” All aboard.
D.W. Gibson recalls being haunted by Roald Dahl’s terrifying Someone Like You.
And Erin Morgenstern, author of The Night Circus, lays some love on one of my all-time favorites, Stephen King’s It. This is a deliciously horrifying trip down memory lane–or rather the sewers of memory lane.
