Straub talks Horror

Happy Halloween, folks.

Great article over on Salon, talking to Peter Straub about writing Horror.

Check it out.

"There's nothing beautiful about violence and savagery, but there is in the human response, that we can feel ourselves deepened by unhappy things that happen to us. Grief is a very painful emotion because it depends on love. It's the price you pay for love. If you live to have actual experiences, you come face to face with real darkness."
