In this podcast James Everington and Dan Howarth talk about their new anthology, The Hyde Hotel, and talk about the appeal of hotel horror.
About The Hyde Hotel
The Hyde Hotel looks almost exactly as you’d expect it to: a faceless, budget hotel in a grey city you are just passing through. A hotel aimed at people travelling alone, a hotel where you know so little about your fellow guests that they could be anyone… and where, perhaps, so could you. But sometimes things are hiding in plain sight, and not everyone who stays at The Hyde gets a good night’s sleep… Featuring stories about the guests and staff of The Hyde Hotel from Simon Bestwick, Ray Cluley, Alex Davis, Cate Gardner, V H Leslie, Alison Littlewood, Amelia Mangan, S P Miskowski, Iain Rowan, Mark West and the editors. Enjoy your stay.
