Welcome to the latest convening of the Horroretc Book Club. Our appreciation of genre literature has been well established and are very pleased to share another collection of recommendations and reviews from not only our own libraries but from the community at large. We have a great mix of audio and written contributions that span a wide range of subject matter and authors.
Opening up the floor we discuss some picks from our own book shelf, this time focusing on the compilation, reference and essay format. Some key recommends include the Mammoth Book of Slasher Movies, Shock Cinema, the Eyeball Compendium, Beyond Horror Holocaust, Killing For Culture, and 200 Alternative Horror Films You Need To See. Things move on to listener picks which span everything from Doc Savage battling King Kong, the S&M themed Nightwhere, Feed, The Descent, Proof, Red Shirts, Cthulu Mythos, Summer of Night and even Enders Game. There are many graphic novel suggestions as well that allowed for some commentary on the comic options seen at Fan Expo and thoughts on recent reads that had not been shared on the podcast yet.
Of course there are the usual tangents that took us from Machete Kills to Discovery Channel’s faux Mermaid exposes, to reading in the bathroom. Thanks to all who participated in the Book Club, one of our favourite annual traditions. Special thanks as well to those who supported us through downloading the Poltergeist premium show as we explain exactly how that ended up saving us from a recent webhost outage.
As always we welcome your comments:
