In this episode, we have a long discussion about horror monsters and classic horror tropes. We talk about what types of monsters, creatures, and types of horror stories we want to see make a resurgence or get reinvented. 

We also discuss the current horror trends we dislike and what we think needs to take a break from the genre.

#85: Real Irish Fiction And Samurai Novels Drunken Pen Writing Podcast

We kick off the episode by discussing the Irish language and some real Irish fiction. We discuss the legendary Irish writer Máirtín Ó Cadhain and his most famous novel, "Cré na Cille" or "The Graveyard Clay" as it's known in English. The focus of the episode, though, is on the ten best Samurai novels. We also talk a bit about classic samurai movies, some Japanese history, the Japanese language, and the most famous samurai Miyamoto Musashi.  Caleb ends the episode by going on an epic rant against ads. Specifically, a certain insurance company that constantly ruins his YouTube video binges.  You can check out our work at You can follow us on Twitter @drunkpenwriting On Instagram @drunkenpenwriting And like us on Facebook @drunkenpenwriting
