 About the Book 

Oftentimes how-to books fall short because they spend too much time with the basics and not enough time explaining the nuances of their subject. Writing Horror, by the Horror Writers Association, doesnt fall into that trap- the authors of the 39MoreOftentimes how-to books fall short because they spend too much time with the basics and not enough time explaining the nuances of their subject. Writing Horror, by the Horror Writers Association, doesnt fall into that trap- the authors of the 39 articles in this anthology assume you can write, and thus they concentrate on getting the most out of working in the horror genre. The result is more like an inspirational guide than a how-to book. Of specific interest is the small section on writing horror comic books, featuring essays on E. C. Comics by Dan Chichester (who has done several Clive Barker adaptations as well as a well-received run on Daredevil), and Breaking All Codes by David Quinn (who broke all sorts of taboos in his bloody and sexy Faust). Other authors include Joe R. Lansdale, Joyce Carol Oates, and the one and only Harlan Ellison.
