I've been asked to chat a bit about my horror book club. We are currently making a journey through the history and evolution of horror. We started out as a Stephen King book club. In this group of friends, we would frequently close out a party discussing horror literature, in particular Stephen King, yet we could find no single book that all of us had read.

Escape Artists, Inc. has a new way to present our community to the rest of the world:
