Hey Samantha. One of the great thing about the horror genre is there's very few borders. You don't have to have gore, deaths, monsters, or any of the genre cliches for it to be horrific. Some of the best horror novels (such as the Exorcist and T.M. Wright's A Manhattan Ghost Story) are purely psychological. And in the uprising "bizarro" genre (see bizarrocentral.com for some samples), it can be stranger than anything you've ever thought of before.
Thanks for the befriendment!
I sent this essay and a few of my other zines to somebody who wrote a "Jesus Christ Super Zine" I saw reviewed in Zine World and Xerography Debt. I've forgotten her name, and last time I looked, I couldn't find the record of my trade/letter to her, but I'm sure she was located in Olympia. I haven't heard from her yet. Maybe you've heard of her. I don't understand the extreme "hate" if that's not to strong a word that so many zinesters have toward Christianity and religion in general. I'm going to print out this discussion and read it. Maybe I'll understand better afterward. Looking forward to your zine.
