Essays on Writing Horror and Dark Fiction

Essays on writing horror and dark fiction by authors Sephera Giron, Lisa Morton, Kathryn Meyer Griffith, Daielle Ackley-McPhail, Cinsearae Santiago, Carol Hightshoe and Mitchel Whitington, AR Braun, Paula Johanson, Bob Nailor, Ivy Reisner, and Kim Richards. Includes advice from current publishers.


In horror we meet people who’ve faced our choices and even worse ones, but nevertheless —sometimes—have come out intact. So horror does two things. It gives us warning (e.g., don’t kiss the vampire and expect things to end well). Also it shows us that—at least sometimes —if we have the spirit we might still, somehow, make it out the other side too.

In this book thirteen authors (well, the last chapter is actually by a collective of eight of the publishers who buy our stories) attempt to find out what makes horror work—and how you, as a writer, might take up the torch and pass on the legends, the true stories with them.
