    Horror Adjacent: Latinx Reads

    Welcome to our horror adjacent curation station! What is horror adjacent, you ask? Well, I go into more detail about that here, but in all honesty, it’s different for everyone. Because what scares you is subjective—and that’s what makes horror such a diverse and fascinating genre to begin with! Horror-adjacent reads might not blow your pants off with the scare factor, but they are still interested in dark themes, difficult ideas, real-world issues, and pushing the envelope of what speculative fiction can be.

    LOHF Celebrates Hispanic Heritage Month: Chicana Horror by V. Castro
