FEARnet Interviews NIGHTMARE Editor John Joseph Adams

Comment

FEARnet has an interview with NIGHTMARE editor John Joseph Adams, about the magazine, the Kickstarter, and what makes good horror stories. 

"For horror, the best way to grab the reader, I think, is to make them feel something visceral. It's a tough trick to pull off, and a lot of horror fiction—even great horror fiction—doesn't quite manage it, but when it does, man do you know you've got something special. I'm not easily frightened or disturbed by fiction—be it prose or film—so whenever I come across something that truly unsettles me, I immediately take notice. Otherwise, what I look for just boils down to the basic tenets of good storytelling: deft prose, engaging characters, originality... I want to be surprised and delighted by an author's turn of phrase, or by the plot turns a story takes, or—in a case where the events are all but inevitable—that feeling of satisfaction of a story coming to a conclusion in the only way that it can." —John Joseph Adams
