SPOOKTOBER DAY TWENTY-SEVEN
welcome to my spooktober audio advent calendar, where, each day during the month of spooktober, i will be celebrating by listening to a free audio short from nightfire’s Come Join Us by the Fire series, and you can join ME by following the links. let’s all be scared together!
another yessssss! and to think i almost skipped this one because i thought john langan was one of those cosmic horror writers whose whole deal shivers the timbers of other readers but is Not For Me.
none of that frustratingly intangible cosmic-horror-stuff here, just regular old supernatural horror—twisty and twisted, clever and squirmingly gross.
the descriptions are all up in your face, describing what’s left of someone’s face, with some extra horror for those of you with dentophobia.
and i loved it.
it also reminded me i should finally crack open my copy of Vlad, but that i should never, EVER discuss it in public.
