Another Tour of the Abattoir at TALES TO TERRIFYMike Allen / Monday, June 16th, 2014 / No Comments »
This latest episode of Tales to Terrify concludes an epic four-part serial of William Hope Hodgson’s The House on the Borderland … and it also contains my latest “Tour of the Abattoir” audio column, in which, at the suggestion of Dominik Parisien, I talk about two weird collections: Karin Tidbeck’s Jagannath and Helen Marshall’s Hair Side, Flesh Side. I had mixed reactions to both books, but found individual stories that I enjoyed muchly. You’ll also hear me wrestle with the notion that, while both books partake of horror tropes, I don’t consider either to be “horror.” Give it a listen here, and share what you think, whether you agree or don’t. Especially if you don’t!
