Ordinarily, we eschew plugs and ads and other forms of mercantilism here at Antagony & Ecstasy, but right now I am making an exception for a good cause. Frequent commenter Bryce Wilson published an e-book recently, Son of Danse Macabre, an analysis of horror in various media – movies, TV, video games, prose – which I had the opportunity to read in proof over the summer. It’s smart as hell and worth every penny of the $2.99 that it costs for the e-text copy at Amazon.com, which can be purchased here.
The book has been out for a while, and I know for a fact that at least a couple of this blog’s regulars have already read it; the rest of you should absolutely join in. It’s a terrific, erudite, conversational survey of the state of horror in the modern day, and I’m very pleased to do whatever is in my power to make sure it gets out to the widest possible audience.
Edited to add: It’s also available at Barnes & Noble, as I didn’t realise at first mattered – we analog readers are a bit stupid about all this Kindle and Nook business, I am afraid.
