Wow. The fortnight passed quickly, didn't it! For those who don't know me yet, my name is Chris Willis and I work for BellaOnline in their Horror Literature section. Drop on in any time at http://horrorliterature.bellaonline.com.
I've added another two articles you may find interesting. The first is about my early experiences with horror literature and why I found it so appealing. The article also discusses why I hated English classes at school and that upon leaving, the true meaning of literature hit me! Check it out and let me know what you think:
My second article, posted today, explores 'The Fear Factor'. How can simple words on a page make us fearful - it doesn't sound possible, does it? So what is the fear factor in writing? How do these words transform our emotions and warp our sense of normality? Find out here:
You may also be interested in some other articles I have written including:
Is Horror a Genre?
Horror Literature v The Movies
Review: Born of the Sea by Victor Kelleher
Where the Wild Things Grow
