Good horror writing is about more than the monsters in the closet; it’s about the monsters lurking inside of all of us. In Kristen Roupenian’s new story collection (You Know You Want This: Cat Person and Other Stories) and Shaun Hamill’s new novel (Cosmology of Monsters) the boundaries and possibilities of literary horror expand to show us new faces of fright. What compels these writers to their dark terrain? What are the unique powers of literary horror?
