David Quantick, author of Night Train, writes this guest post for Tor Nightfire, sharing his belief that the genres of horror and comedy are close stablemates.
As well as being a prolific writer, Steve Stred is a prolific reader, racking up more than 500 reads in the past two years. Hence his new feature series at Kendall Reviews, ‘Books from the Crypt’ in which he will select three standout books from his reading pile to shout about every couple of weeks, starting now.
Richard Thomas’ Storyville articles at LitReactor are always worth checking out and this one on writing fiction in collaboration seems timely, as it coincides with the announcement of They’re Watching, written collaboratively by This is Horror’s Michael David Wilson and Bob Pastorella.
In this deeply personal post on her path to becoming a horror writer, Cynthia ‘Cina’ Pelayo, author of Into the Forest and All the Way Through, shows just one of the many unconventional paths to becoming a writer.
