“Welcome to episode 586. We have three tales for you this week. First, when Apollo 11 lands on the moon, it’s not only those on Earth that watch with keen interest. Then, a woman exorcises her hatred for the rose garden her husband planted for her. Finally, a malicious app finds its way onto a man’s phone with dire consequences.”
31 Days of Horror 2019: Mike Thorn’s ‘Dreams of Lake Drukka/Exhumation’
“This is an excellent double shot of Thorn’s brand of creeping, slow burn horror, continuing from 2017’s short story collection Darkest Hours.
You might know Thorn through his film criticism in the MUBI Notebook or Vague Visages, among others. His fiction has appeared in Dark Moon Digest and Tales to Terrify. His style is somewhere between the weirder short works of Stephen King and the more down to earth works of Clive Barker. I found Darkest Hours to be a surprisingly fun read where I often didn’t know where I was going or why, but when I got there I felt fully satisfied with the journey.”
