#HorrorAddictsGuide An Interview with Rena Mason


Horror Addicts Guide to Life 2 

renaWhat is your name and what is your horror area of interest?
My name is Rena Mason and I’m a horror author of fiction and nonfiction. I have also co-written a screenplay and have another in the works.

What is your work in HAGL2 about?
My article is about the use of colors and the emotions they elicit in film(s) and how I applied those techniques to my short story “The Ninth Tale” in the award-winning anthology Black Cranes: Tales of Unquiet Women.

What is your favorite horror subject and why?
Pretty much everything horror is a favorite subject to me, but if I had to pinpoint an aspect that had the most impact on my early developing horror mind, I would have to say monsters. From reading the ogre in Jack and the Beanstalk and the monsters in Where the Wild Things Are to sneaking late-night peeks of Godzilla and Christopher Lee’s Dracula, they all struck an intense fear that the kid in me also found thrilling.

What are you looking forward to in the horror genre? 

This one’s easy—Other Terrors: An Inclusive Anthology which I co-edited with Vince Liaguno for the HWA’s Anthology Series published by Mariner/HarperCollins out July 19th.
