Sleeping with the lights on

Horror expert Darryl Jones delves into the long, dark history of horror in his new non-fiction release, Sleeping with the Lights On

Released by Oxford University Press, Sleeping with the Lights On looks at the fundamentals of horror and why fear has always been such an important part of story telling. It goes on to look at the metamorphoses of the genre, both in literature and film and also examines horror as a lens through which the anxieties and fears at a societal level can be projected through horror. You can get hold of your copy here.
