Meet The Writer: James Brogden

The Narrows by James BrogdenWhat first attracted you to horror writing?

An 80s childhood in rural Tasmania effectively forced me to develop an imaginary world to escape into or go insane. My parents got me into fantasy and science fiction early on – from Dad, The Lord of the Rings, from Mum, the books of John Wyndham – but it wasn’t until we moved to England that I really began to appreciate the sense of dark, creaking age which underpinned fantasy cycles like Mythago Wood and the Dark is Rising sequence and I starting getting into authors like James Herbert, HP Lovecraft, and Ramsey Campbell.
