In the world of genre and fandom, the universal currency is passion. Fans of different genres normally would not mix, but there are areas of overlap, LIKE a GENRE VENN DIAGRAM. Join me and H4H producer, Lisa Gorski, as we discuss the overlap between two of the most passionate fandoms, HORROR AND SCIENCE FICTION. (shock: Lisa is NOT a horror fan!)  #horror #scifi #lovecraftcountry #sayhorror #alien #thething #TheExpanse #TheRitual
