Tombs Lore, More Sent to Sonnet O’Dell; Horror Movies’ Secret Revealed?
And so today I completed Sonnet O’Dell’s DUSTY PAGES author interview (see below, June 28), answering twelve of a whopping fifty-question lineup. No, no, those were enough, in fact we were asked not to do more than fifteen, but that’s part of the fun of Sonnet’s questionnaires, that most questions are serious, but some are plain wacky. “A duck walks into a bar, what does he order?” Yes, that’s one I chose, but as for my answer to it . . . well, we’ll find out here eventually, won’t we? But first we must find out from Sonnet if/when the interview’s scheduled for publication.
Meantime email perusal continues with today’s bringing another item worth passing on. I’ve been on convention panels related to this one, the nuts and bolts of how many (maybe all?) popular horror films work. So herewith from CRACKED.COM, “The Secret Thing All Horror Movies Are Really About” by Robert Brockman, courtesy of Peter Saloman via HORROR WRITERS ASSOCIATION on Facebook, and for which press here. (And then, of course, the fun for this one is to look for exceptions. Any suggestions?)
