NHE host Scott Murphy chats to author Lex H. Jones about his new short story collection “Whistling Past The Graveyard.” A collection that covers a variety of horror subgenres from folk horror to traditional ghost stories to Lovecraftian madness and a whole lot more besides.
In the interview (the interview begins at 1:38) Lex talk to us about why he likes dark endings, silly tropes in horror fiction and how he draws as much inspiration from films and video games as he does literature. Plus, we talk about the differences in British and American humour, how he is drawn to classic horror monsters and some of Scott’s favourites stories in the collection.
Elsewhere in the interview, we talk about ’90s action figures, how video games, comic books and horror have become more mainstream over the last 30 years and ask the very important question “Why didn’t Elrond do more in Lord of the Rings?”
