Reading Envy 065: Creeping through the Uncanny Valley

Bryan Alexander drops by the Reading Envy pub to chat horror novels and short stories. Bryan has been exploring the question of the best 21st century horror novel for about a year, and Jenny wanted to hear about what he has discovered. Bryan also chats a bit about a near-future science fiction book club of sorts that he will be hosting on his blog. Jenny also manages to ask one of the authors we discuss some of the questions we had about his novel.
