WHITE HORSE? Missing and Murdered Indigenous People Crisis. Awful father disappears his own daughter and no bothers to investigate. Not even her friends or family. The monster? The crisis itself.

Okay, that’s it for horror. Hope it’s help.

Now onto nonfiction!

Sure, there were monsters but only monsters driven by humanity’s own misdeeds. There would be no horror in ALL THE WHITE SPACES without the sins and guilt those explorers brought with them. Even the fact they traveled there showed their dark desires.

Forget serial killers and the Albert Fishes. Show me SOFT AND QUIET. The horror everyday people do. Examples? WHITE HORSE, ALL THE WHITE SPACES, THE ONLY GOOD INDIANS.

What makes the best horror? The unknown. We don’t need monsters that go bump in the night because we are the monsters. Show me the evil darkness of humanity. What do I actually mean?

I’ve been feeling survival horror in the vein of ALL THE WHITE SPACES. Give me isolation, hauntings, nature vs humanity, cli-fi, upmarket. Think EVENT HORIZON without the sci-fi. IN THE MOUTH OF MADNESS is another good one. Also, horror from marginalized voices: #mswl

My current #MSWL: character-driven horror (Lovecraftian, GET OUT, A God in the Shed), SFF w/ unique non-western European settings, mysteries, thrillers, women's and lit. fiction crossovers (romance or suspense), all romance (especially romantic suspense). #Querytips #FictionList

I'm feeling some #AHS-esque horror right now, considering I had a nightmare about pig-men chasing me. Scare the crap out of me. #MSWL

Horror a la SINISTER - a slow burner with a sharp twist. Exposes the darkest recesses of humanity. True horror. Think APT PUPIL. #MSWL
