We thought this mini episode was too important to release as a Patreon exclusive, so we are releasing it to all our listeners.

As a horror podcast that mostly focuses on film and books, we have been debating how to address the current movement and protests to address systemic racism and violence against people of color. Our solution is to offer some recommendations of black horror writers. We recognize that this does not end the violence and racism, but giving a voice to people of color in all genres is hopefully one small step on a much longer path.

We also wish to say that all three of us stand with the Black Lives Matter movement in its fight for justice.
