Essay at Horror Reanimated: “The Book I Would Like to Be Buried With”
Recently, Mathew F. Riley and the other good folks at Horror Reanimated have been asking a number of horror writers to name, and explain, the single book they would like to be buried with.
My own essay went live today. [UPDATE 3/1/17: Horror Reanimated is now defunct, so the link just given will take you to a cached page courtesy of the Internet Archive’s Wayback Machine.] I just now reread it and realized that I may have finally managed to explain to my own satisfaction why I’m helplessly hooked on both supernatural horror and books about philosophy, religion, and spirituality.
Previous entries in the series have come from Mark Samuels, Thomas Ligotti, Laird Barron, Adam Nevill, Mark Morris, Brian Lumley, Reggie Oliver, Michael Marshall Smith, David Moody, Christopher Golden, Gary McMahon, and Simon Strantzas — a fine crowd to be associated with, for sure.
