For this week’s show, I’m joined by Dr. Miranda Corcoran! She teaches English at University College Cork where she also teaches American Literature. She’s taught courses on horror, science fiction, and intersections of psychology and literature. All the way from Ireland, thanks to the magic of Skype, welcome to the show Dr. Miranda Corcoran!

To Ellington’s horror, the man transforms before his eyes into the Devil.
