“When it comes to horror literature, there are a few names that instinctively come to mind. Clive Barker, H.P. Lovecraft, Stephen King, Edgar Allan Poe…
As a big reader (and an author myself), I’m always on the hunt for someone new. So when I get a call from my mate, Jamie Blanks, telling me to check out Mike Thorn, I knew he would be the next big name in the horror genre.
After being put in contact with Mike, he was only too happy to oblige this Aussie fan with an interview.”
