Manchester Literature Festival- Grimm Reading

In a back room at Manchester’s Cornerhouse, a small audience was joined by a panel of three authors who have all won awards in the field of horror fiction. Matt Haig, Conrad Williams, and Tariq Goddard each read from their latest novels before beginning a conversation on the breadth of the genre, chaired by a genuine British Horror legend Ramsey Campbell.

The discussions quickly swung to the long-running debate, concerning the snobbery that horror writing faces in the literary arena. Both Matt Haig and Conrad Williams had some fascinating insights and there talent, coupled with their relative obscurity, suggests that horror may still be receiving a raw deal.
