Why a person that fears Steven King lives in a haunted house.

Untitled1

Why a person that fears Steven King lives in a haunted house.   When I was younger, yes many moons ago, I loved to watch things that gave me goose bumps. I remember the first version of the Blob, yes it was in black and white, and it did scare me. But the horror genre has changed over the years. You use to see the killer lurking in the shadows, the knife would come up and plunge down and you knew they were dead. You didn’t need the details, or the graphics. Well today they leave nothing for the imagination and some of the scenes will have you jumping out of your skin. As time has passed I found myself to afraid to watch, or read anything that would make me leave the light on to sleep. As you can tell I am one of the biggest babies when it comes to horror movies, ghosts and anything that goes bump in the night today. But when my children were younger I would take them to the scary movies and I would be the one hiding her face and screaming out loud in the back. I truly think they made me ... Read More »

You Mean You Still Haven’t Heard Of Noir Romance?

You Mean You Still Haven’t Heard Of Noir Romance? by Laura Oliva   When you hear the word “noir,” what’s the first thing that comes to mind? If your first thought is of an old black-and-white movie riddled with out-of-date slang, that’s okay.  Noir has deep roots in film.  Initially, it was Hollywood’s reaction to the sense of foreboding and general depression prevalent in post-World War II America. But noir has never been the sole domain of the screen.  Just look at such literary heavies as Raymond Chandler, Dashiell Hammett, James Cain.  Even Ernest Hemmingway dabbled in it.  Since its heyday in the thirties and forties, noir has trickled into genre after genre.  Mystery, most obviously, but also science fiction, fantasy, and increasingly, romance. To understand why, you need to understand just what “noir” is.  At its most basic, noir is an exploration of the darkest aspects of the human soul.  In a noir story, natural law is turned upside-down.  Morality is ill-advised, and love is a joke.  Nice guys finish dead. So what could it possibly have to do with romance? Romance is one of the most subversive genres in the literary pantheon.  It regularly delves into such explosive ... Read More »
