I am a big fan of a good short horror story collection and do still sell the occasional little monster to outside markets.  I believe a good horror story should be treated in much the same way as a good joke–-A riveting hook and then a gutting punchline.  I think it’s why so many horror authors also tend to have a great sense of humour.  There’s a certain rhythm to the short horror story that, much like a joke, is deadly when executed just right.

I often write short collections when I’m in between novels.  It helps break up the creative process when locked into a project that never seems to end, and offers some freshening up to my writing by affording a change of setting and characters.
