The Three Hoarsemen (Episode 14): Halloween Horror with David Annandale

Feeling their sap slow down with the onset of Fall, John E. O. Stevens, Fred Kiesche and Jeff Patterson stumble northwards in search of maple syrup, strangely-shaped bacon and cheese curds. In their journey they stumble across David Annandale, professor of strange films, author of strange books, and lover of strange games. Join in the conversation with the latest Fourth Hoarseman as the boys discuss the Warhammer 40,000 universe, the legacy of splatterpunk, the horror implosion of the 90s, the scarier aspects of the New Weird, and old cheap movies.

After that…hold on to your wallet…the discussion turns to books, movies, comics, television, conventions, and other culture consumed!

4 Comments on The Three Hoarsemen (Episode 14): Halloween Horror with David Annandale

  1. One of the better horror specialty imprints of the 1980s would have to be Dark Harvest. They did an anthology series called Night Visions with a rotating list of editors including George R.R. Martin, Robert R. McCammom, Clive Barker, and F. Paul Wilson. Each volume contained stories by three authors, and one included stories by King, GRRM, and Dan Simmons. The one major failing of the anthos, though, is the total lack of women writers.

    You badmouthed Skiffy and Fanty–and Patrick Hester hasn’t even been on yet πŸ˜‰

    Seriously, excellent discussion, guys, could have gone longer.

  3. Yes, Night Visions! And a couple of truly excellent anthologies — Hartwell’s Dark Descent (the book than which The Weird aspires to be bigger) and McCauley’s Dark Forces.

    Could Cherryh’s Voyager in Night be considered SF horror?

    I still have my copy of DARK FORCES. It’s where I first read King’s “The Mist,” one of the few works of his that I like. I read more horror back then, although I found that in our conversation on this podcast that there was more horror-touched stuff in my past, and even present, reading than I had first thought.
