A lot of horror stories start like this: a family moves into a suspiciously cheap dreamhouse. Over the course of the story, the house reveals its sinister nature–voices whisper unsettling things, mirrors reflect people who aren’t supposed to be there, the walls bleed–and at last the occupants discover its terrible secret. You can’t gentrify a haunted house–you either have to accept it as it is, burn it to the ground, or run away. But that doesn’t stop people from trying. And right now, there’s a cheery little squeeful family trying to move into a creepy old house called horror fiction. Here to talk about it, is Andrew F. Sullivan, Canadian, horror author, and bread-shaped dog owner. (Not to be confused with the other, inferior Andrew Sullivan.)
