(Art by Alex-Cooper.)

Today I have a powerful story to share. It’s not spine-tingling horror, but it is haunting in
a very different way. And it’s definitely related to our Halloween interests: “The Ghoul Goes West” by Dale Bailey at Tor.com.

Here’s a teaser:

They keep telling me not to write dystopias. The reason is that my fiction has a nasty habit of coming true. I’ve been encouraged to write light, fluffy tales of wonderful things happening to everyone.

But that would be boring, wouldn’t it?

Tana French Interview with Tana French
Dublin crime novelist Tana French has the kind of critical reviews that other writers would…well, die for. Her debut murder mystery, In the Woods , won rave reviews and multiple literary prizes upon its release in 2007. Since then, her books have tended to haunt the bestseller lists, on both sides of the pond, and for months at a time. British newspaper The Independent has dubbed French "The First Lady of Irish Crime," and The Washington Post says she is the most important crime novelist to emerge in the past ten years. ...more
