Episode 5: The Subtlety of Terror

On today’s show we hear a chilling story by Christie Stratos, The Subtlety of Terror, where we find that it’s the quietest evils that are the most horrifying—their persistence, constant presence, and unyielding terror.

After the reading, Christie and I talk about how she created this deliciously dark story. She tells us about the difference between horror and terror, and how she uses deep elements of the human psyche to terrify her readers.

Christie Stratos is an award-winning writer who holds a degree in English Literature. She is the author of Anatomy of a Darkened Heart and Brotherhood of Secrets, the first two books in the Dark Victoriana Collection. Christie has had short stories and poetry published in Ginosko Literary Journal, Andromedae Review, 99Fiction, and various anthologies. An avid reader of all genres and world literature, Christie reads everything from bestsellers to classics to indies.
