As our tradition here on the site, every Halloween night belongs to the George Romero film that launched a sub-genre and, with time, a crapload of careers. I regret the fact that I didn’t get a chance to interview Romero after he cancelled at DragonCon, because I wanted to ask him what it was like to basically invent a sub-genre. Talking with Doc, we were able to come up with only a couple of other examples: Poe with the detective story and mayhap William Gibson with cyberpunk.
So here we go. The one and the only, on the night that it owns. Hope you dig it.
