NHE host Scott Murphy chats to horror writer Robert P. Ottone about his brand new short story collection “Her Infernal Names and Other Nightmares.”
In the interview (the interview begins at 1:13), we talk to Robert about how the anthology developed from being conceived as a novella to becoming a short story collection, the overarching theme of the collection and why so many of his stories end on cliffhangers. We also get into the sheer variety of horror covered in the collection and if he was concerned that readers may be put off by some of the tonal shifts between short stories.
Away from the anthology Robert also tells us about how he got into writing, how is writing is more heavily influenced by film than literature and why he thinks horror films have a resonance that other genres can’t compete with. Plus, he gives us a sneak peek into a couple of the project he is working on next.
