     Ha-ha, I’m it!

     My fine fellow blogger, Crazy Goblin managed to catch me before I made it to safe ground so now I must answer his questions – because you know what Christina Rossetti said about Goblin Men…

Q.  Have you ever been made redundant from your job and how did you feel about it?

A.  Thankfully, no.

Q.  If you were interviewing someone for a writing job, what 3 qualities would you look for and why?

A.  I would ask; do you live in a garret and have a laudanum habit?  Are you psychologically traumatised?  Can you hit a deadline?  Yes to any one of those three gets you the job.

Q.  What is your favorite board game and why?

A.  I hate board games.  Competition makes me anxious and I still have nightmares about Operation.

Q.  When you look at the stars, what do you see?

A.  Galaxies far, far away...

Q. When you look at the ocean, what does it remind you of?

A.  A big blue wobbly thing that mermaids live in.

Q.  How do you overcome writer’s block?

A.  A change of scenery  (which is just an excuse to head for a different coffee shop).

Q.  If you could say 3 encouraging things to another person, what would they be?

A.  I love you, in a million years time who is going to care?  And no, your bum doesn’t look big in that…

Q.  Do you prefer to write your stories/books/poetry/prose/articles on paper first, then type them up and edit them, or do you like to type them straight into your computer to edit?

A.  Despite having romantic notions about a quill and parchment everything goes straight on the laptop.  I didn’t learn to touch-type for nothing.

Q.  Do you like writing in one genre or more?

A.  I’m a fan of the darkly fantastic but that is a vast and multifaceted thing.  I enjoy entrail-draped gimp dungeons AND cute fluffy bunny rabbits.

Q.  As a writer, do you think actions speak louder than words?

A.  Definitely.  Words are tricksy.

Q.  What is your favorite quote and why?

A.  If there’s nothing wrong with me then there must be something wrong with the universe.

     So, scramble everyone because if I tag you it’s your turn to copy what you see here…

     Cabal is the natural evolutionary step from Clive Barker‘s groundbreaking short story collection, Books Of Blood.

     This slim novel offers post-Cronenbergian body horror, Freudian identity issues, an original mythology for monsters and includes a rampant serial killer: more than enough material for a lifetime’s worth of sequels and spin-offs.

     Cabal’s naturalistic dialogue, deft character strokes and punchy yet eloquent prose render the most extraordinary flights of fantasy entirely plausible so it remains a great pity that – despite an open ending – Barker has never returned to continue the journey of anti-hero, Boone.

     Fans will have to make do with Barker’s own darkly brilliant movie adaptation, Nightbreed; recently re-edited for a must-see Director’s Cut.  Click the link for further information http://www.clivebarker.info/morenightbreed.html
