On Saturday, May 8, Cult of Cinema‘s Aaron Pynn will host a conversation between Mike Thorn (author of Shelter for the Damned and Darkest Hours) and Jamie Blanks (director of Urban Legend and Valentine).
“Thorn gives us a slow burn story that shows a kid spiral as the shack he loves hooks its tentacles into him and begins to distort right from wrong.”
“Many of the stories in this collection concern the topics of academia (with academics being alternately portrayed as buffoonish or somewhat sinister) and drinking/drunkenness; the two are most amusingly combined in the clever ‘Speaking of Ghosts.'”
“Thorn has a cutthroat ability to reel you in, a writing style so sharp and penetrating that it threatens to tear you open, layer by layer … Shelter for the Damned felt like the lovechild of Barker and King.”
