Remo Kempt knows that writers are busy people. So, he’s trawled through the reams of fiction and non-fiction out there in the world and picked out ten must-reads for all horror writers on LitReactor.
Tim Waggoner talks frankly about rejection, about writing even when you feel like no-one sees your work, and about the resilience required to write. Frank, informed and well worth taking the time to read.
Meagan Navarro picks out ten horror movies based on true events to make you scared to go down to the basement.
The Shortlist team dig into their top thirty scariest books of all time. Many of these come from horror, but others originate from outside the genre, yet are no less terrifying.
