Episode 54: Interrupting Musings This Week


I’m interrupting this week’s musings on mummies to take a few minutes to announce that last Friday marked the release of Horror Literature from Gothic to Post-Modern: Critical Essays (McFarland & Co), which I co-edited with Nicholas Diak.  This is my third book that I edited and the first in which I shared co-editing duties.  All the essays are the result of horror studies presentations that were given at the first two Ann Radcliffe Academic Conferences that Nicholas and I co-chair yearly.  

The conference, in its fourth year, is held in conjunction with the Horror Writers Association’s StokerCon, an annual convention that in addition to the academic conference also hosts a Librarian’s Day, Final Frame Short Horror Film Festival, Horror U, panels, book signings, and the prestigious Bram Stoker awards.  This year, StokerCon is being held in Scarborough, UK, April 16 – 19, 2020.  If the UK is a bit too far to travel, then plan to attend StokerCon 2021, which will be held stateside in Denver, Colorado, May 20 – 23, 2021 at the Curtis Hotel.  

Anyway, Horror Literature from Gothic to Post-Modern: Critical Essays is available for purchase at Amazon (see HERE), McFarland (see HERE), and other online book sellers.   Note: McFarland currently has the book in stock and I imagine that Amazon will have copies shortly. 

I’ll be back next week with new musings on mummies!
