A Darkling Brace

by Timothy J Jarvis

A post just to collect a couple of old pieces of mine.

The Forest

I’ve an essay on Laird Barron’s story ‘The Forest’ up at the WeirdFictionReview.com, ‘Stages of Horrific Vision’, in which I use some critical theory in order to try and get to grips with the powerful charge Barron’s writing has. That essay is here.

Berberian Sound Studio

And I’ve a piece on Civilian Global that starts off as a review of Peter Strickland’s remarkable Berberian Sound Studio, but shades into a meditation on the weird and dread alchemy of horror music. It can be found here.
