Description

"Warning: This book is almost impossible to put down." - Tracy Fahey, Author: The Unheimlich Manoeuvre

Just how much are we shaped by the entertainment that scares us?

Author, blogger, podcaster and lifelong fan of genre Kit Power sets out to answer that question with a collection of essays that take on the works - and events - that scarred him as a child and young adult. Stephen King's IT. Hellraiser. The Thing. The Wasp Factory. Jeff Wayne's War Of The Worlds. Hillsborough. Welding childhood recollection with adult insight and analysis, Power digs deep into his personal reactions and feelings as he attempts to understand his continued fascination with the genre - and the emotion - of Horror.

Collecting the first three years of his work for the 12-time BFS nominated review site Gingernuts Of Horror, with each essay revised and expanded, My Life In Horror Volume One represents one fan's journey through genre - an autobiography via the medium of pop culture.

"If you want to mainline someone's utter love and immersion in books, movies and music, with beautifully honest reflections on life, the world, and everything, look no further." Stephen Volk, Screenwriter and Author

"My Life In Horror is a loving, enthusiastic, insightful and compulsive read for any fan of the genre. I fully recommend it." - Brian Keene, Horror Grandmaster
