Cameron Baker and Mike Thorn talk about everything from influences to current works and future plans.
Earlier this year, we had the great pleasure of conducting a Q&A with author Mike Thorn for his debut novel Shelter for the Damned, and with his short story collection Darkest Hours: Expanded Edition also now available from JournalStone Publishing, we once again caught up with Mike in a new Q&A to discuss revamping his previous short story collection, adding in new goodies for readers, and more!
“On this episode I interview horror author Mike Thorn. His stories gave me nightmares but this conversation served up the laughs.
There’s a wicked poltergeist story and a double dicked demon. What more could you ask for?”
In the introduction to Calgary writer Mike Thorn’s short-story collection, Darkest Hours: Expanded Edition, American horror aficionado Sadie Hartmann offers a list of the complex subgenres found inside.
Hartmann, who goes by the name Mother Horror, found traces of everything from “gross-out body horror,” to “satirical black comedy,” “slasher,” “urban legends” and even the “Satanic panic” of the 1980s in Thorn’s work.
