The Thing in the labyrinth (2)_edited.jpg

In partnership with the Denver Horror Collective (DHC), A.E. Santana moderates The Thing in the Labyrinth, a monthly virtual horror book club. Along with novels, members will also read short stories, novellas, plays, and poetry collections.

Authors are often invited to join club sessions to discuss their works. Meetings are held every fourth Sunday via Zoom, unless otherwise noted. In November and December, adjusted dates and times are implemented for the special Short Story Event to accommodate the busy holiday season.

Sessions are recorded but are only made available to Labyrinth and DHC members on private channels. For upcoming book club meeting information, including registration info, please sign up for The Thing in the Labyrinth's newsletter here, check out the events page here, or see the DHC website here.
