What is your name and what is your horror area of interest?
My name is Michael Fassbender, and I’m a writer of horror fiction. I also love to read horror fiction, watch horror movies and listen to music with horrific themes.
What is your work in HAGL2 about?
One of my articles explores the strains of horror in the Metal, Punk and Goth musical scenes, and considers what our musical preferences may say about our approaches to the horror field. The other draws parallels between the explosive introduction of Negan in The Walking Dead and the origins of the pharaohs in Egyptian prehistory. The intersection of horror and history has always appealed to me.
What is your favorite horror subject and why?
I have a clear preference for supernatural horror, but that covers a wide range of flavors, from ghost stories to Lovecraftian monstrosities to tales of demonic possession. There needs to be some kind of otherworldly element.
What are you looking forward to in the horror genre?
Mike Flanagan’s next series is supposed to revolve around the works of Poe, so I’m doubly looking forward to that. Also, I think I remember correctly that they’re going ahead with new installments in the Insidious and The Conjuring franchises.
Where can readers/listeners find your work?
Most of my published work is spread out in anthologies, but you can find out information about each at my website, michaeltfassbender.com.
