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:
Bird Box / Josh Malerman. Harper Voyager, 2014 and Malorie: a Bird box novel / Josh Malerman. Orion Fiction, 2020
