“The purpose of my survival was to bear witness, to carry the tale. The thrill of spreading terror, of lurking in the night as bogeymen of legend, titillates them. They are beasts, horrid undreamt of marvels.”Laird Barron, The beautiful thing that awaits us all
I was joined by the lovely Hailey Piper to discuss horror short story collections. She has a collection coming out this year, Unfortunate Elements of My Anatomy, and we talked about the art (and science) of choosing and ordering stories for a collection. We touched on the exciting news of a Worst Laid Plans anthology movie in the works and her upcoming novel, Queen of Teeth. Be sure to check out our conversation.
