If someday the moon calls you by your name don’t be surprised,
Because every night I tell her about you.
—Shahrazad al-Khalij (via floorsleepers)
When we think of horror stories as being primarily about lone, male protagonists facing “evil” that must be defeated, it makes sense that certain writers might feel left out of the paradigm. Of course, horror has never been that simple. What better genre is there for turning conventions about gender, good and evil, sexuality, and society on their head than the genre that asks us to look at the darkest parts of ourselves? Women, as well as people of color and others who are culturally marginalized, have stories to tell that can transform and subvert existing horror conventions. Horror has subverted expectations about “monstrous” and “normal” or “evil” and “good” right from the beginning of the genre, and now compelling and diverse dark fiction writers are reaching more readers and expanding definitions of horror.
