The folks at the Fang-tastic Books blog recently asked me if I’d be interested in contributing a guest blog post, and asked whether I had any interesting topics in mind to write about. Well, it didn’t take me too long to decide on a topic, not at all. See, I recently encountered an interesting social situation where I received a fair amount of strange reactions from people, surprised at the idea that I was a writer of horror. It may not be a new topic, this idea that only the demented or damaged find pleasure in tales of the horrific, but I’m shocked that it still seems so prevalent. In fact, I’m sure that most avid readers of horror encounter strange stares and raised eyebrows from time to time.
So, I dove in, documenting my thoughts on the matter with glee. Head over to the Fang-tastic Books blog, and check it out, leave a comment there or here, and let me know…why do you read horror?
