This week Jill is not only back from her witchy work visit to Massachusetts, she's sitting down with Rachel K. and Quinton to discuss some of their favorite horror novels (and she tries her hardest to not spend the entire episode mentioning Stephen King). Last week was all about YA horror reads and this week it's about adult horror. From classics like Edgar Allen Poe to contemporary authors such as Joe Hill, Rachel, Jill, and Quinton discuss why they love the genre so much and what, exactly, makes a horror novel a horror novel.
