Order Up an Exclusive October Scare, The Best of Dark Terrors

Subterranean Press

Looking for something to keep you up at night? How about a story about a serial killer searching for the perfect mother? Or a tale of a cursed couple, haunted by their unborn children?

Between 1995 and 2002, Dark Terrors: The Gollancz Book of Horror, was Britain’s premier anthology of original horror stories. These stories bit with teeth and scratched with nails, and even when they missed, they left a glancing mark. They’re also now available as The Best of Dark Terrors. Subterranean Press collects together twenty of the most memorable stories from the original books in a new collection. 

Over six volumes, Gollancz established itself as a cutting-edge corner for some of the most literary and disturbing fiction being produced on either side of the Atlantic. The horror anthology series published some of the biggest names in the field and launched many newcomers who forged their own impressive careers in the genre.

In Poppy Z. Brite’s disturbing Self-Made Man, for instance, a serial killer’s nocturnal activities warp the fabric of reality. Gwyneth Jones proves that some of the worst ghosts come from beyond the veil of death in Destroyer of Worlds. And Lisa Tuttle’s My Pathology combines unbound mad science with pregnancy in a body-horror spectacle. Each of The Best of Dark Terrors share distinct narratives delivered on the tenor of dangerous unpredictability.

You can now stream the original Shōgun miniseries — here’s how
You can now stream the original Shōgun from the '80s!
Yoko Shimada and Richard Chamberlain in Shogun.

After making a tremendous debut earlier this year, FX and Hulu's Shōgun is easily one of the top TV series of 2024. In addition to being critically acclaimed, Shōgun is such a massive hit that FX is already planning additional seasons to what was originally a standalone adaptation of James Clavell's 1975 novel. It was also one of Hulu's most-streamed series of the year, so it's understandable why FX wants to keep the show going.

This isn't the first time that Shōgun has taken audiences by storm. The original TV adaptation of Shōgun from 1980 was widely considered one of the greatest miniseries ever made. It also had the distinction of being the first and only U.S. production to be filmed entirely in Japan. At the time the new Shōgun premiered earlier this year, the original miniseries wasn't available to stream. But thanks to the new adaptation, fans can now find the 1980 incarnation of Shōgun on one of the major streaming services.

The White Lotus season 3: Everything we know
Get up to date on everything we know about The White Lotus season 3.
The cast of The White Lotus season 1.

When the first season of The White Lotus premiered in 2021, few could have suspected that it would become one of the best shows on HBO and Max. Even series creator Mike White considered The White Lotus to be a six-episode one-off story. But viewer response to this black comedy miniseries was so strong that White and HBO realized that they had a hit on their hands. That's why the series was quickly renewed, and it premiered on HBO and Max in 2022 just a little over a year after the first season.

The White Lotus season 3 was confirmed in November 2022, but unfortunately, the hiatus between seasons is going to be over two years. Each of the first two seasons featured an almost completely different cast of characters, although Jennifer Coolidge and Jon Gries reprised their characters in season 2 to establish some connections with the previous season. There aren't currently a lot of details known about the third season. Regardless, we're sharing everything we know about The White Lotus season 3, which includes most of the cast, the theme and setting, as well as when fans can expect the show to return.
