Telling Tales of Terror

I've mentioned it before and I'll mention it again. Telling Tales of Terror from Damnation Books is a great primer for the budding horror author. This book provides firsthand advice on how to write compelling dark fiction.

As with any writer's manual, the advice contained in this book can be applied to most genres so it's worth checking out.

My own chapter in it discusses how to anchor a story and create atmosphere through setting.

Writers are usually addicted readers as well and this book combines anecdotes and musings as well as practical advice about how to compete in the modern horror field from a variety of authors established in their field.
