Oh, the Horror

In this panel, fear takes on new meaning. Allegra Hyde investigates the climate crisis and “global weirdings” as her fictive landscape in the short story collection The Last Catastrophe. Gabino Iglesias centers a hitman’s journey in The Devil Takes You Home. Victor LaValle merges horror, sisterhood, and a mysteriously fatal steamer trunk in Lone Women. Join these authors in conversation to redefine and reexamine the horror genre. Moderated by Lincoln Michel (The Body Scout).
