As part of a double blog with The Murder Room, a wandering traveler from our Orion Fiction list, Andrew Pyper looks to his new paperback, The Demonologist, and asks…

 What’s the difference between writing crime and horror? Trick question.  There’s no difference in the writing on a molecular level – they are stories, and thus employ all the elements and structures and rhetoric and sleight of hand common to all storytelling.  But there is a difference, at least for … More
