If you love @ThisAmerLife & @Radiolab like I do, then you need to listen to their brilliant, paint-huffing cousin, @thedollop.
"Ferguson" and "Larry the Cable Guy" are currently trending in 1st & 2nd place, respectively. We are in a badly-written horror movie.
Did this guy just win an au gratin potatoes eating contest? You're gonna announce this awful verdict through that phlegm-pipe? #Ferguson

31 HORROR STORIES -- "A Defense of Werewolves" (1948)

@ 1:00 PM

Well, we're almost at the end. So here's a moment to reflect.

Fritz Leiber is one of my favorite writers. Because, like Shea and James and Bloch and so few others, he could really WRITE. Didn't matter if it was hard science fiction, Fafhred and The Grey Mouser, chess, history, satire or horror, the dude was a master craftsman.

So I'm not going to even bother, my first time doing a list like this, to pick his best. Or even my favorite. Not yet. There's too many.

I'm picking this essay, which he wrote in 1948, but which was so eerily prescient about which way horror fiction would go in the 50's and beyond, and what would happen to vampires, werewolves, and things that went bump in the night.

It's sad, I know. But, as always with Fritz, expertly written.
