Reposted from THE LOGIC OF HORROR
Dear Madam / Sir,
I am currently completing my Master’s degree at the Oxford International Centre for Publishing Studies with a dissertation on the horror book publishing industry. Its title is Oh, the Horror! An Investigation into the Logic of the Field of Horror Publishing. My approach is based on Pierre Bourdieu’s theory of “cultural fields” and their logic, and I am trying to investigate the dynamics within the field of horror publishing.
I am interviewing editors and authors with the purpose of analyzing the major trends, structures, dynamics and issues in publishing horror fiction in the USA and the UK. In addition to this, I have also prepared this survey in order to gather information of statistical nature from the horror trade industry in these two countries. I would be extremely grateful if you could spend no more than 10 minutes and take the survey you find at the bottom of this page. Any information you could give me would greatly help my dissertation from a professional’s viewpoint.
The answers will only be used in the dissertation and will not be made available to the public.
If you have any questions or suggestions, please contact me using the buttons in the top right corner of this page.
Thank you very much.
Flavius Ardelean, M.A.
