Chasing Mystery

Several extremely interesting articles from the Guardian: Lawrence Scott discusses "Murder on the Dance Floor," (images of death in/while dancing), Mark Lawson takes us on a literary tour of crime fiction, and Alex Godfrey talks to Zachary Quinto about horror on television. Do we seek out artistic images and themes of crime, horror, and death because they seem so far removed from our lives, or because they do not? Yet death is with us always and ever, and crime more and more. Is that part of the horror?
