Danse Macabre: Ghost Story

Danse Macabre is a recurring feature of The Losers' Club that journeys through all the books that influenced Stephen King. (You know, as he listed in 1981's Danse Macabre. Ahem, hence the name of this series.) In the past, this feature has flipped through the pages of Shirley Jackson's The Haunting of Hill House, William Golding's Lord of the Flies, and Ray Bradbury's Something Wicked This Way Comes. Today, however, the Losers find themselves in Milburn, New York revisiting Peter Straub's chilly 1979 horror novel Ghost Story. Join Michael Roffman, Jenn Adams, Ana Marie Cox, and Justin Gerber as they chart the rise and fall of the literary horror wave of the '70s, debate the MVP of the Chowder Society, point out the literary influences, connect the dots to King's Dominion, and share their own spine-tingling ghost stories.
