Richard Laymon Speaks!

Horror fans with nerve enough to pick up the latest issue of "Cemetery Dance" (#52) will be treated to a special interview with the late Richard Laymon, much-loved scribe of the horrible. Joe Nazzaro, who conducted the interview back in 1997, explains that for various reasons it never saw the light of day before Laymon's death in 2001.

Not wanting to come off as a grim opportunist, Nazzaro has waited until now to release the interview from its crypt. And it's well worth the wait. I can't remember the last time I read an interview with an author who was so candid and direct in answering questions about his work.

Especially helpful for the newcomer to Laymon's work are his own recommendations of which books to start with, depending on one's tastes and tolerance for bloodshed. He even suggests a title for the "sweet old lady who really insist[s] on reading something" of his.--Pete Mesling
