The Nightmare Within by Glen R KrischWhat first attracted you to horror writing?

Lest You Should suffer Nightmares by Johnny MainsWhat first attracted you to horror writing?

For many years I wrote poetry and song lyrics, but back then thought that writing horror poetry wouldn’t be accepted, so didn’t do it.

What first attracted you to horror writing?

I read horror widely when I was a teenager in the 1980s, reading many of the popular horror writers of the time such as Richard Laymon, Dean Koontz, Graham Masterton, Clive Barker and of course, Stephen King. I won’t be the first writer of my generation to be profoundly affected by IT.

What first attracted you to horror writing?

I loved horror even as a kid. On Saturday afternoons, I watched all of the old Universal monster movies on TV – Dracula, Wolf Man, Frankenstein, The Mummy. I also collected, put together, and painted the old Aurora monster models.

What first attracted you to horror writing?

It was a mix of things, really: I’ve always wanted to write (I wrote ‘get something published’ on an undecorated wall in my house at the end of 1999 as a way of making a new millennium’s resolution – I figured giving myself 1000 years was a good timeframe), and I wanted to write horror because it was what I like to read. As long as I can remember, I’ve enjoyed reading, watching and listening to horror stories, so it seemed a natural thing to then write them when I came to actually start writing.

What first attracted you to horror writing?

I began writing at a very early age. Back then I had an Olympia typewriter that would annoy my mother for hours on end, and most of the time I had to limit what I wrote to an hour a day or face her wrath.

What first attracted you to horror writing?

Story telling and imagination were close at hand in my youth. I loved old time spooky radio shows, and the illustrated Eerie and Creepy magazines, and The Twilight Zone, and The Outer Limit, all of which in some form or other embodied short stories. But as to how I came to dip my pen in the otherworldly ink, well, I’d say I was following my brother Jeffrey’s lead.
