In lieu of a real blog post (because I’m supposed to writing right now, really!), some links of note:
Nice essay on the works and influence of Jackson, plus a bonus plug for the Shirley Jackson Awards
Jeff discusses the new Library of America edition of Shirley Jackson’s work.
Dave previews his new horror novel and discusses authors who write both crime and horror.
A personal account of why one of today’s most important horror writer’s does what he does. Which is scare the poop out of me. Seriously, I’m reading his OCCULTATION right now, and his “Mysterium Tremendium” might give me some nightmares tonight.
I throw in two cents. Implicating my brother in the dastardly commercial plot that is Transformers.
