Ep 08: A Crash Course in Horror. September 30, 2019.

Fall is in the air! As such we bring to you our dear listeners a seasonally themed episode featuring a Crash Course in Horror. The genre of horror is intended to frighten, scare, and disgust. Join Yuli and Sam as they (very briefly) discuss how horror came to be and where it’s at now. They discuss all things Mary Shelley and HP Lovecraft, to Stephen King and R.L. Stine. Is our obsession with horror a means to find out who we are through a reflection of our innermost selves? We hope to find out. Or at least be frightened a bit along the way...   Find us on Instagram @biglittlebookspod Email us biglittlebookspod@gmail.com with any feedback, comments, or just to say hello.  Happy Reading!   EPISODE GUIDE: PART 1: All About Horror 00:00:49 - Housekeeping Duties 00:06:25 - Romanticism & the Gothic Horror Genre: THE CASTLE OF OTRANTO by Horace Walpole 00:07:55 - Sam's Favourites: FRANKENSTEIN by Mary Wollstonecraft Shelley 00:10:35 - Sam's Favourites: DRACULA by Bram Stoker  00:13:05 - American Horror: Edgar Allen Poe 00:15:17 - American Horror: H.P.
