Publisher's Summary

In this hour, Colson Whitehead talks to Steve Paulson about his take on the post-apocalyptic zombie novel, Zone One. Whitehead grew up consuming horror fiction, films and TV so it's no suprise that he decided to tackle a zombie novel.

Then, Jason Zinoman talks to Jim Fleming about his book, Shock Value: How a Few Eccentric Outsiders Gave Us Nightmares, Conquered Hollywood, and Invented Modern Horror. In the book, Zinoman chronciles the careers of the directors who revolutionized horror movies during the 1970's. Zinoman calls this movement "the New Horror."

Next, John Landis talks about his new book, Monsters in the Movies: 100 Years of Cinematic Nightmares. Landis is the director of such popular films as An American Werewolf in London, The Blues Brothers and National Lampoon's Animal House.

Then, Maggie Nelson talks to Steve Paulson about her new book, The Art of Cruelty: A Reckoning. In the book, Nelson explores the images of torture, horror and endless warfare that inhabit our political and entertainment landscape.

And finally, Eugene Thacker talks to Anne Strainchamps about his book, In the Dust of This Planet: Horror of Philosophy, Volume 1. In his book, Thacker argues that our world is increasingly unthinkable and that the horror genre can help us, since horror and philosophy have a lot in common. [Broadcast Date: November 2, 2011]
