Bigger. Bolder. More Personal.
Picking up where My Life In Horror Volume I left off, this book collects the final five years of essays in Kit Power's celebrated My Life In Horror blog series, each one revisited and revised for this edition. For Volume II. The subject matter is even more eclectic than Volume I, with totemic horror works sitting alongside other pop culture artifacts and deeply personal experiences as Kit digs deeper, really trying to get under the skin of the art that moved him as a child and young man... and to answer that seemingly eternal question, Why Horror?
This volume two collection includes essays on The Nightmare On Elm Street franchise, Candyman, George Ramero's Martin, Bodycount's debut album, Natural Born Killers, Superman III, The Columbine massacre, and many, many more. As with Volume I, each essay has been revisited and revised, creating a second autobiography via the medium of pop culture.
