HORRIFIED PRESS INTERVIEWS ME.



AUTHOR SPOTLIGHT

Nathan J.D.L. Rowark interviews:

Mark Slade

Hi Mark. Thanks for agreeing to answer some questions for our facebook followers; about yourself and your work.

Q.) Why don't you start by telling us a little bit about the experiences in your life which helped you decide to become a writer...

A.) Lots of T.V and my older brother, Doug. He read all the time and had a crap load of books. His fav writers are mine as well.

Q.) In your contributions to ' Tales of the Undead – Suffer Eternal: volume II' (The Auction / The Three Hells of Guy Franklin). Give us a spoiler free insight to the concepts of your tales and what you feel inspired you to write them...

A.) I believe those stories were written in two day spans, back to back. One was a writers prompt from Writers Café. The auction was that story, and the second tale (The Three Hells of Guy Franklin) was based on the thought; what if Richard Matheson had written a story with this plot.

Q.) I like that, and it's what I was most excited about when this collection came together; so varied in content, the more traditionally told tales followed by the frighteningly modern and subversive. Where do you see your writing career going in... for example, let's say ten years time? Is this the medium you want to write for? Where would you like to be?

A.) Just hoping to sell more stories, having fun writing these screwed up tales.

Q.) Who were your literary influences, Mark?

A.) Definitely RAY BRADBURY, RICHARD MATHESON, ROD SERLING DENNIS ETCHISON, CHARLES BEAUMONT, ED MCBAIN, CLIVE BARKER, JOE LANSDALE...too many to list.

Q.) Top 5 Novels?

A.) HELL HOUSE, SOMETHING WICKED THIS WAY WAY COMES, SALEM'S LOT, BOOKS OF BLOOD VOLUME 1-3, THE DROWNING POOL by Ross MacDonald.

Q.) Top 5 Inspirational horror movies that affected your own working style?

A) HORROR OF DRACULA, DEVIL'S BRIDE (DEVIL RIDES OUT) HELLRAISER, THE EXORCIST, TEXAS CHAINSAW MASSACRE.

Q.) Your Top 5 horror icons?

A) CLIVE BARKER, CHRISTOPHER LEE, PETER CUSHING, RAY BRADBURY, INGRID PITT.

Thanks for taking part in our little Q & A. And don't forget, fans of the gruesome and grotesque, our latest horror anthology, 'Tales of the Undead – Suffer Eternal: volume II', is available from the 28th of May 2013 at Amazon.com & Lulu.com
