I spend a lot of time breaking down the whys and hows of the very best the horror genre has to offer fans. For example:
- Click here for for my explanation the appeal of horror.
- Click here for guests posts by horror authors where they answered my call to tell you why they love horror during 2012’s 31 Days of Horror.
- Click here for every post I have labelled appeal on this blog.
But besides reminding you of what I have said in the past, today’s post was inspired by my colleague, Kimberly Stack, Collection Development Librarian at Baker and Taylor whose public library website is http://www.btol.com/p_library_details.cfm. Kimberly provides RA to librarians and in her words, “the wonderment of working in a position like mine is that all my patrons are librarians."
Kimberly sent me a wonderful and instructional link that goes a long way toward explaining the appeal of horror. Entitled, “9 of the Most Terrifying 2 Sentence Horror Stories Ever Told,” it is exactly what it sounds like. People wrote the best horror story they could in 2 sentences, and the results are chilling.
I feel like I can talk about why people like horror forever and you will think you understand, but if you simply click through and read a few of these 2 sentence stories you will feel it for yourself.
So, click away, but BEWARE.
