Genreville, the PW blog about SF, Fantasy, and Horror had this post talking about female horror writers. Led by author, Hannah Neurotica, Women in Horror Recognition Month has grown in its second year. Here is a link to their manifesto. It is a month to celebrate all of the women who work in horror as well as the female fans. Neurotica has recruited others to join the conversation too.
Female horror writers are often left out of the horror discussion. I note this in my new book (out this summer) with a section on notable female horror writers. I am happy to pass on more resources on these dark women writers. There really is some great female created horror out there right now, and much of it is getting lost in the male dominated horror community.
I also had this post, my first in a series called, "Backlist Not to Miss" about often overlooked female horror author Tananarive Due. She is a favorite with men and women at my library.
