Bob Pastorella and Michael David Wilson sit down with Mike Thorn to discuss his three 2021 releases, Jim Thompson, Kathe Koja, writing horror within academia, and much more.
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.
“With this short novel, Thorn tackles unknown sentient horrors, teenage rage, violence, and toxic masculinity in a stunning and intimate debut.”
