Can you share some of your favorite authors who don’t write under the explicit banner of horror, but whose work is chilling in some way nonetheless? I’m always interested in intersections between “genres” that can dissolve or disrupt the categories we use for shelving stories in the bookstores. . Brian Evenson, maybe? his stuff get under your skin in a way that doesn’t feel right at all, but he’s not trafficking in the usual conventions of horror, either (which isn’t to say there won’t be gore). of course Jeff Vandermeer’s Annihilation isn’t classed ‘horror,’ yet, it’s pretty horrific. but then there’s the stuff that just sears your soul. Dorothy Allison’s Bastard Out of Carolina. Samuel Delaney’s Hogg.Sovereignty tattoo shirt the opening scene (I think it’s opening) of Louise Erdrich’s The Antelope Wife, man: I don’t know if we in horror have come up with anything even approaching that kind of brutality yet.

I was nearly always a barbarian. I was never the thinker of the crew. I have PLAYED Werewolf the Apocalypse, though (probably pics of it around? was on the Queen Mary, in an auditorium, playing with Bill Bridges actually on GM, and George Martin kind of our leader, and Chuck Wendig, and Nancy Holder, and I forget who-all. I was wearing werewolf ears. for THAT, I was also barbarian-ish: a dire wolf the whole while, who’s just stimulus-response, pretty much. but that turned out to be exactly the secret weapon we needed to take down the giant sloth at the end . . .Sovereignty tattoo shirt Hey Stephen, thanks for dropping by! In light of the recent release of the FBI file on Bigfoot and the Navy’s new guidelines on reporting UFOs how close do you think the US government is to disclosing some legit information? Have you ever had any kind of unexplained sighting yourself?

Also, are you any good at hackysack? I was sort of obsessed in university but never managed to get better than mediocre. It’s a lot of fun though. I’ve never seen nor thought I’ve seen a Bigfoot, but, man, I’ve talked to some people who are so, so sure they have. and? I bet there’s some skulls at the Smithsonian, yeah. let’s ransack it. and, hackysack: yeah, I was pretty good, and am still a fair foot at it. finally had to quit because I blew my ACL playing, and had to have microgfracture surgery on top of that, along with some other stuff, so, that plus two Achilles ruptures . . .Sovereignty tattoo shirt I try not to play anymore. but I passed it on to me son. he’s better than I ever was. It seems that Horror – as a genre in both modern and folk storytelling – has traditionally not been kind to female figures and characters. Women are portrayed as everything from murderers (Lizzie Borden, Dracula’s handmaidens) to victims (countless horror movies can attest to that). How do you work around these tropes and stereotypes to create female characters who have their own agency and approaches in dealing with the horrors they are facing?
