Hi, I've been invited to participate in a panel discussion with the title, GLOBE-SPANNING HORROR. What do you think would be important to discuss? What developments in other parts of the world should I be aware of?

I'm knowledgeable in J-horror as a film genre, as well as Japanese horror manga, and the writings of Koji Suzuki, as well as the older, Kaidan-style films. I'm familiar with horror movies that have come out of China, Korea, Thailand, Indonesia, and Malaysia as well. I've read over a dozen books on Asian horror movies. But east Asia and southeast Asia comprise one specific portion of the world, and even with Asia, my familiarity mostly runs toward film.

Do you know of any terrific horror from other parts of the world? I'd love to see more horror fiction from all over the world.
