Description:
This collection of essays examines some of the odder corners of the intersection of reason and fear, including professional skeptics who condemn horror fiction as dangerous, radical theorists who misused horror ideas to claim aliens visited the ancient earth, and the thematic connections between H. P. Lovecraft's ancient extraterrestrial gods and the cosmology of Scientology.
