I wanted to see what you came up with, since I recently did a paper on the requirement to start renaming the cosmic horror genre, and What The Hell Did I Just Read was one of my examples of why we needed to redefine the genre.

Wait, what do you mean by that?


EvilNoobHacker t1_j1z4xcm wrote

The genre of cosmic horror has can easily be split into Lovecraftian Horror- horror that is inspired by the works of H.P. Lovecraft- and Modern Cosmic Horror- horror that is much more existential than it’s compatriot. One of the first papers I wrote in college was an argument of why we needed to officially recognize the growing split in subgenre between the two, and why recognizing the difference between the two would more accurately give readers an expectation of what they were in for.

I wanted to see what you did with the title, since I’ve already thoroughly analyzed the actual book that was written with it.

Quite interesting with the paper...

On the other hand... I am basically making up summaries for random book titles (i.e ones that don't exist.)

I'm sorry if it's not what you expected...

Oh no, I wanted to see the difference between them. I’m happy that it was different! Heck, I’m a writer myself, and “Goose Chase” as a name and concept alone for a short story gives me something that I can’t wait to write and share with my family and friends.

Also, if you ever made a short story for Goose Chase, let me know!
