What is horror literature and why does Hamilton need it? David Neil Lee, author of the Hamilton horror novel The Midnight Games (Wolsak and Wynn 2015), maintains that at its best, horror can be a literature that explores and extends our relationships with our bodies, with our pasts, and with the natural world.
Last year, David Lee completed a PhD in English at the University of Guelph. As a double bassist, he has performed in Hamilton with Gary Barwin, Dave Gould, and in a trio with Chris Palmer and Connor Bennett. His YA novel The Midnight Games won the Hamilton Arts Council’s 2016 Kerry Schooley Award for regional literature. His other books include the novel Commander Zero, the award-winning Chainsaws: A History, and the jazz studies The Battle of the Five Spot: Ornette Coleman and the New York Jazz Field and Stopping Time: Paul Bley and the Transformation of Jazz. He lives and works in Hamilton.
