What first attracted you to horror writing?
Reflecting on my earliest childhood encounters with horror, I remember being initially attracted to the genre’s visual iconography, above all else. It seems impossible to separate my desire to write horror from my interest in reading horror. These two things are inextricably bound.
Mike Thorn will appear on This is Horror on Sunday, October 10.
“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.”
“I loved seeing Mike’s love for the genre shine through in his work. This occurs in the fiction pieces alongside the essays that can be found at the end of the expanded edition.”
