For the 63rd Second-Hand Book Factory, Charles Adrian is joined by writer and sometime academic Alan Cunningham. They talk about precision in the face of horror, the creation of fear and just plain good storytelling. Oh, and get ready to sit back and chill out at the end of the episode for nearly ten minutes of gentle bliss.
