Horror and dark fiction allow us to be scared without getting hurt. You can explore impossible scenarios and sometimes possible ones that make you think. Kid’s horror is one of the reasons that I started getting into reading as a child because it’s scary but you can close the book and it’s done. It was reassuring, in an odd way.

My focus here was more on the survivors finding their way in a strange new world, and on how they form relationships with one another. I like this sort of approach as I think sometimes the emptiness and solitude of something – be it an emotion, a decision or the apocalypse – can be more terrifying and unsettling than seeing the monster directly.
