Bryce Wilson of Things That Don't Suck fame has started a new blog with the intention of writing, as he says, "an unauthorized sequel" to Stephen King's important work on the subject of horror in literature and film, Dance Macabre. As he writes:
"The Son Of Danse Macabre is going to be strictly a horror blog/book exploring the last thirty years of horror media through the concepts and theories of Stephen King's Danse Macabre. I want to do something really ambitious with SODM, not only end up with a workable manuscript (ambitious enough), but one in which horror fans directly participate. I've got an outline but there's plenty of room for improvisation within it. I want this to be, a truly collaborative experience where the readers let me know what they think have been the most important events in the last thirty years of horror as I write it."
The first post is up and it's insightful and involving -- a great start to what looks to be a truly involving new project. I'll be reading...hope to see you all there.
