A question for Allison Wall

Q: What is the scariest or most disturbing story you’ve ever read?

A: There are several in the running for most disturbing. “The Lottery” by Shirley Jackson is the first story I remember being seriously disturbed by. Flannery O’Connor’s “Good Country People” and “Revelation” are up there, along with Joy Williams’s “Traveling to Pridesup.”  As far as scary, Jeff VanderMeer’s “The Third Bear” plain terrified me–I didn’t have the guts to read the rest of his collection afterwards.

About Ekaterinya Vladinakova

I was born and currently reside in San Francisco, and spend most of my time painting & drawing. At the age of three, we moved to Chicago and lived there for seven years before moving back to San Francisco. Since the age of six, I had an interest in artwork, especially science fiction related artwork. During most of my early childhood, I played “pretend” with my brothers and friends from the neighborhood, which involves aliens and their civilizations. I would continue to do so till around the age of 13, while continuing to draw fictional scenes. During high school, I enrolled in a major of fine arts. And in 2012, I graduated from high school and enrolled into California College of the Arts.

Sabrina N. Balmick’s story “La Belle Dame” was published in Metaphorosis on Friday, 4 March 2016. I wrote the first draft of “La Belle Dame” one summer after reading the Keats poem. I’d read it several times before, but this time it struck me differently. Maybe it was because I’d read it with a writer’s eyes for the first time; maybe I’m just a sucker for tragic romances.
