DJ from “MyLifeMyBooksMyEscape” sat down with Nicole Cushing to discuss “The Sadist’s Bible”, living in the mid west, Shirley Jackson, and the popularity of novellas. Here is a sample: DJ: What is the world of The Sadist’s Bible like? NC: Most of the book takes place in our own world. (Specifically, in southern Indiana, Kentucky, and Virginia.)

On the surface, I love that overly ornate wordsmithing (like Ambrose Beirce.  Or Lord Dunsany, whom I’d read even earlier), but the deeper themes of hopeless cosmic terror and the incompatibility of the human mind with inter-dimensionalRead More →
