In today’s episode of Signal Boost, Jen talks to Eden Royce, a southern black woman transplanted to jolly old England, about the differences between horror and the Southern Gothic, the influences of her rootwork and hoodoo cultural background, the challenges of getting published in horror given the kinds of stories she writes, and so much more.
Then Karolina Fedyk, a non-binary Polish writer, talks to Jen about why they write horror, the importance of representing marginalized people in stories about Polish history, the challenges to writing in two different languages, and how their stories are different depending on which language they write in.
