Welcome to our first ever Stay at Home Horror Hangout
It is a crazy time. The Coronavirus has swept the world and forced us all to stay home as much as possible for the foreseeable future. In these kinds of times, connection with others is vital. That’s why the Monster Men have decided to host a Stay at Home Horror Hangout.
We’ve invited horror author and podcaster Laurel Hightower as our guest for a chat about all things horror. We talk about the books and movies we plan to enjoy during the shutdown, the life of a horror author and podcaster and the importance of the horror community in days like these.
Laurel Hightower is the author of Whispers in the Dark and one of the hosts of the Ink Heist podcast.

Here’s the synopsis:
The South Pole in winter is one of the deadliest places on Earth. The seven person crew of the US Freedom Base lives alone in months of utter darkness with no hope of help or rescue. A freak storm batters the walls and threatens to expose them to the deadly cold. All they can do is wait…and pray.
The ground quakes. An alien screech rips through the night. There’s something, or someone, lurking outside. Fists bang on the walls. Each tiny crack in the base spells death by hypothermia. Untold horrors have come to Freedom Base…and they want in!
