Cherie Priest joins us for our “wildcard” episode on Lovecraftian horror this month. We’re still doing the master class format, and part of that format is that once per month we’ll have a guest, or otherwise step away from the month’s topic a bit.
This episode talks about what Lovecraftian horror is, its influence on genre fiction, and the tools it offers for modern writers.
Audiobook Pick-of-the-Week: Maplecroft, by Cherie Priest, narrated by Johanna Parker and Roger Wayne.
Writing Prompt: Take a character, and from that character's point of view, describe their reaction to something horrific and awful, but do so without describing the thing itself.
