FAQ’s Answered #6: What’s So Scary About “Panic!” Anyway?


Today in a series of replies to FAQ (frequently asked questions) sent to me by fans (and sometimes not so much), I answer the question “What’s So Scary About “Panic!” Anyway?“, asked by Fran.

This is a question one of my readers asked me recently, and one that I really don’t mind answering! (Fran, I hope you don’t mind! đŸ˜‰ I’m not picking on you, I promise!) Anyway, ‘what’s so scary about “Panic!“?’  By that I mean, naturally – my series “Panic! Horror In Space“!

Well, for starters, “Panic!” is a horror series set in space – and space is dark and dangerous, and well, scary! Now, hang on a moment – I know that sounds a little silly if not actually vague – but it’s true! Of course, being set in space is only a tiny part of the whole thing – but a setting can make or break a story – and I think you’d have to go a long way to beat space for its inherent scare factor!

Think about it: A billion things could go wrong out there, and each of them might kill you if they had the chance – radiation, vacuum, micro-meteorites, temperature extremes, asteroids, black holes – equipment failure – and even, as in “Panic!” – the paranormal.

Those of you who have already read my book “Demonspawn” might have paused just a moment perhaps, to wonder why I named the starship which most of the story centers around, “the Mordrake”… and so here it is – the actual inspiration for the name!

What A Lovely Review Of “Demonspawn”!


Demonspawn by Christina Engela – a review

by Lee Hall

‘In space, not all things were certain… not even death’

Demonspawn is a detailed well-imagined space story, which I found hard to put down, in fact I read the book in just 3 sittings.

Christina Engela has created a believable world of space travel, delivering it in way that seemed to me logical and explained without straying from the main plot.

From the very opening, there is a deliberate psychological vagueness as to what the ‘big bad’ could be. This heightens the mystery giving readers a real urgency and a want to find out, eventually you will. More
