Madness May: What Is Cosmic Horror?

Welcome to Madness May! This month Chelsey and I are going to explore one of our favourite genres/trope flavours: cosmic horror.

Hey Alexandra, What’s Cosmic Horror?

Cosmic horror is full of all the fun things that go bump in the night: unknowable gods, cults, scary math and a deep sense of existential dread.

There is no way that we could cover everything that we would want to say to summarize this genre. So instead I’ve put together a playlist of videos that do a better job of defining cosmic horror and weird fiction than I could ever hope to.

So pull up a chair, dust off your copy of the Necronomicon and get ready for a descent into madness.

The best explanation of cosmic horror I've ever read.

Alexandra is always looking for the next book she can devour. She has a love hate relationship with teen fiction specifically when it comes to fantasy, post apocalyptic and failed shakespeare adaptations.

Have your say!
