To read Dan’s article along with several other articles on living the horror lifestyle, pick up a copy of Horror Addicts Guide To Life. Recently Dan was nice enough to tell us what he likes about horror:
What do you like about the horror genre?
Much like good science-fiction that explores what it means to be human, I find myself attracted more to horror stories that shine a light on the dark side of humanity so we can see the ugly parts and expose the things that scare us.
What are some of your favorite horror movies, books or TV shows?
As a child of the 70’s and 80’s, my favorite memories are of the classic Hammer films, as well as the Universal monster movies. There’s too many books to list, so I’ll just cop out and say “anything by Stephen King”. As for TV, I enjoyed Tales From The Crypt and Tales From The Darkside.
In what way do you live the horror lifestyle?
It isn’t as outwardly visible as it used to be. I’m not the goth I was in my youth. I suppose it is just my morbid fascinations that I exhibit. Morbid Meals is a major part of that. Whether it be celebrating Halloween with pumpkin recipes a-plenty vs. just gorging on candies, or finding out how to make sugar skulls, etc., I am intrigued by bizarre foods and traditions.
What are you currently working on?
I’m still working on Morbid Meals recipes for Horror Addicts, and I do plan to release a cookbook for of such recipes. Story-wise, I’m working on a dark fairy-tale for our next anthology, ONCE UPON A SCREAM, which I am delighted to be editing.
