In which I read two essays from the currently-crowdfunding My Life In Horror Volume II campaign.
The essays cover John Christopher's The Tripods, and ITV's 90's crime show, Cracker. In between, there's a Q&A, where I talk about writing non-fiction, the dangers of notions of 'objectivity', and our seemingly inevitable slide towards authoritarianism.
Enjoy - and if you are reading this before 1st November, be aware that you still have time to back the crowdfunder and bag a limited edition print version, or a discounted ebook. Go get some!
This time out George and I spend some quality time talking about Valve's genre-redefining classic FPS video game, Half-Life. Expect comprehensive spoilers for the plot of the game, and, as ever, huge enthusiasm.
In this classic What The Hell Is Wrong With Us? episode, Geroge Daniel Lea and Kit Power take on not one but two seminal Batman graphic novels - Frank Miller's The Dark Night Returns and Grant Morrisons Arkham Asylum. Expect in-depth discussion and massive spoilers for the texts. Enjoy.
In the second episode of WTHIWWU? George and Kit take on Poppy Z Brite's seminal Extreme Horror masterpiece Exquisite Corpse. CN: Listen to intro for details, but Exquisite Corpse is dark as hell. So. You know. Caution.
