In this episode, we welcome back Caitlin Starling, whose appearance in Episode 101 let us delight over her terrifying and intimate THE LUMINOUS DEAD. This time we're all about her new novella, YELLOW JESSAMINE, and we get to talk about some our favorite topics (queer subtexts abound) and learn much more about what makes horror feel like, well, horror. Plus, we have an extended discussion about poison gardens, which are a thing you should absolutely know about.
If you'd like to learn more about Caitlin's excellence, check out www.caitlinstarling.com or follow the adventures on Twitter at @see_starling. YELLOW JESSAMINE is available from Neon Hemlock Press at https://www.neonhemlock.com/books/yellow-jessamine, where you can also find out more information about the other 2020 novella quartet authors that we have talked to on this podcast in recent episodes!

We’d still love your reviews if you’re willing and able, but please put your $$ toward ending police brutality and ending systemic racism. You can celebrate our queer take on science fiction and fantasy by honoring the Black trans women and other diverse peoples who led the charge at Stonewall and elsewhere. On theme, you can put some bucks towards Unicorn Riot, your state’s bail fund, and the official George Floyd Memorial Fund.
