Horror in the Margins
Creator Interview: Ai Jiang
Show Notes

We talk to Nebula Award-nominated author Ai Jiang about her latest release, Linghun, now available through Dark Matter Press. We discuss the myriad ways in which grief can haunt us, the capitalistic exploitation of sorrow in the town of HOME, the innate power of names, loss in the context of immigration, and the importance of letting go of the dead in order to live. 

Also, we forgot to mention it while recording, but Ai created a PLAYLIST for Linghun, which you can listen to on:
