Welcome to

The Midnight Society
"Horror is not a genre, like the mystery or science fiction or the western. It is not a kind of fiction, meant to be confined to the ghetto of a special shelf in libraries or bookstores. Horror is an emotion." ~Douglas Winter

"Fear has many eyes and can see things underground." ~Miguel de Cervantes
"Where there is no imagination, there is no horror." ~Sir Arthur Conan Doyle
We are fascinated by the darkness in ourselves, we are fascinated by the shadow, we are fascinated by the boogeyman." ~Sir Anthony Hopkins

poe T he Midnight Society is a reference magazine dedicated to the discussion of horror literature and writing. What makes a story horror? What classics do we draw inspiration from? If you write horror, how do you improve upon your own craft? These are some of the guiding questions for this magazine.

What are we doing here? This magazine is not a repository of articles. Although we may share articles, essays, and other references, these are only to support the ongoing discussion of horror literature and becoming better writers of horror. Post links to your Horror genre posts, asks for critiques, point out posts other people have written that you find great examples of horror writing here at Pan.

We are a magazine, so anyone is free to post here, but we do ask that you do not start new threads. Please visit the social board thread "Feedback and Suggestions" if you'd like to suggest a new discussion thread.

Challenge. Discuss. Improve.

Please take into account that we are not experts here, but we all have something to offer in sharing opinions and helping each other. We ask that our members engage others in conversations and comment on posts, striving for dimension in our discussions. In this effort, all threads on the Discussion Boards are fair game for constructive criticism and honest hashing out of ideas. Get over the fear of being critiqued.

It's horror, people. Face your fear.
