Podcast Horror Fiction

Nisa & Rachel are back! Discussing Horror Fiction in our latest episode of ‘Parra Pods‘.

Horror Fiction seeks to thrill, to terrorise, to tap into the dark side of humanity. Sitting under the umbrella of ‘speculative’ fiction, Horror Fiction combines and contrasts the known with the unknown to induce a feeling of dread in the reader.

Join Nisa and Rachel as they discuss a mix of classics and new books in the genre:

  1. Bird Box / Josh Malerman. Harper Voyager, 2014 and Malorie: a Bird box novel / Josh Malerman. Orion Fiction, 2020
  2. The Southern Book Club’s guide to slaying vampires / Grady Hendrix. Quirk Books, 2020
  3. Carrie / Stephen King. New English Library, 1974
  4. Frankenstein / Mary Wollstonecraft Shelley. Lackington, Hughes, Harding, Mavor & Jones, 1818

HAPPY LISTENING!

Book Club Reviews

There is just no stopping our Dundas Readers Book Club, they really are reading machines!

Last month the Dundas Readers read one of our hugely popular kits ‘A Gentleman in Moscow‘. Which I admit I have been wanting to read for a year or more, ever since the ‘Happy Bookers’ club recommended it as one of their all-time favourites.

Hope you enjoy reading what the Dundas Readers thought of their latest read!

Happy Reading!
