Horror stories have enthralled readers for centuries: from the penny dreadful to Pennywise to post-millennial zombies, stories that reach into our nightmares can be equally chilling and thrilling. Our panel of horror writers considers what makes us feel fear and why we read books that make us scared to turn out the light!
Joe Hill is the winner of the Locus Award for The Fireman. He is also author of novels Heart Shaped Box, NOS4A2 and Horns, adapted as a cult film starring Daniel Radcliffe.
Yrsa Sigurðardóttir is author of the Thóra Gudmundsdóttir crime series and has also written numerous horror novels, including The Undesired and Silence of the Sea, as well as the creepy new Children’s House series.
