This week in the Cold, we're talking about the woo-woo, the spiritual, the paranormal, and why even the most rational of us just love, love, love it. The paranormal is such a tasty spice in the stories we read and write. It can be a smaller element of a greater work of literature or genre fiction, like the witches in Shakespeare's "Macbeth," or commandeer an entire story, as it did in Bram Stoker's "Dracula" or Stephanie Meyer's "Twilight" and Maggie Steifvater's "Shiver." Big or small, it draws us in, opening up a world full of mystery, showing us both our darkest and best selves. Reminding us that anything is possible.
I'm also including a link to a blog radio program I was on some years ago, hosted by two lovely women writer friends. I came across it again recently and had a listen. It's a great conversation about Historical Fiction and the paranormal elements in the stories we love, and I think you're going to enjoy it.
