I would love to give an entire year long course on the Horror genre (as well as take one - is there a degree in Horror Studies?) I feel that Horror is an under rated genre and a lot of Horror writers I have talked to state that the genre is kind of looked down upon as low brow, poorly written and with disdain. I would love to read, study, dissect, analyze and discuss how horror is important and influential in all aspects of life. I would include fairy tales (the first tales of warning) to flash fiction and bestsellers of today.
Grimm's Fairy Tales.
The Vampyre by John William Polidori.
Carmilla by Sheridan Le Fanu.
Edgar Allen Poe - Maybe this should be an entire course?
Stephen King - Again, an entire course?
There are tons of authors and works that I'm leaving out, so yes, I think Horror Studies, or Horror Literature should be an entire degree! What books would you want on your course syllabus?
