Category: Books
Description: It was not long after Halloween when Stephen King received a telephone call from his editor. ' Why don't you do a book about the entire horror phenomenon as you see it? Books, movies, radio, TV, the whole thing.' The result is this unique combination of fantasy and autobiography, of classic horror writing honed to an unforgettable edge by the bestselling master of the genre. DANSE MACABRE ranges across the whole spectrum of horror in popular culture from the seminal classics of Dracula and Frankenstein. It is a charming and fascinating book, replete with pertinent anecdote and observation, in which Stephen King describes his ideas on how horror works on many levels and how he brings it to bear on his own inimitable novels. There is a reason why Stephen King is one of the bestselling writers in the world, ever. Described in the Guardian as an author who 'knows how to engage the deepest sympathies of his readers', Stephen King writes books that draw you in and are impossible to put down.

Holy Horror


Category: Books
Description: What makes you afraid? It may be more than what you think. Horror films have been exploiting our fears almost from the moment movies were invented. Lurking unseen in the corner of horror, however, is something unexpected: the Bible. Sit back while the curtain parts and watch as the Good Book appears in both supporting and starring roles in the most unlikely of cinema genres. Starting with Psycho and running up through the 2010s, horror films, monster movies and thrillers will flash across the screen with Scripture plainly in view. Holy Writ is not always what it seems. The Bible not only attempts to ward off evil, it often becomes a source of fear itself. Aliens, ghosts, witches, psychopaths, and especially demons haunt these pages as the Bible attempts to hold them at bay. Movies are a window into what people really believe. In a culture of high biblical awareness and low biblical literacy, horror movies become authentic sources of belief. In this book Steve A. Wiggins explores how it looks if we take seriously what horror tells us about the Good Book, as he brings together two unlikely subjects and shows how scary the Bible can be.
