Leah and I interviewed about M. R. James, his literary legacy, and adapting his work. www.bbc.co.uk
P. M. Buchan (Bucky, we call him) interviewed me for his regular Horror Comics bit in the always horrible (in a good way) Scream Magazine #37.
In the interview I talk about Ghost Stories of an Antiquary Vol 1, H. P. Lovecraft, and my Greenwood writing, among other things. I also seem to have acquired a new nickname, which I’m not sure I’m happy with…
