Thoughts on Horror Fiction (a response)

las has posted an insightful piece by author Gary A. Braunbeck (aka haceldama). "Writing Horror: The Devil's in the Details" offers Mr. B's take on crafting intelligent tales of terror, by focusing on the details. Particularly, he emphasizes the development of spiritual and psychological aspects (as well as motivations) for whatever Boogeyman is used (if you haven't read it, give it a go).

Generally, this is sound advice.Collapse )
