Hope you don't mind having a Yank on board. I've a great interest in the horror genre, Charles Birkin being my literary idol (as both author and editor). I've done my best to follow in his footsteps by editing a dozen or so anthologies and some five-dozen single-author collections and novels. Somewhere along the lines I've found time to scribble a tale or three. I hope no one minds if I resurrect some older topics that I may have a bit of additional info on.
I do hope creating a new thread to say "hello" is the proper form, if not, the moderator may certainly feel free to delete this.

Yes indeed - welcome! I'd count all the books I have edited by you on my shelves but it would take too long. I am, however, in the middle of the massive Cemetery Dance two volume CENTURY OF HORROR fiction right at the moment. And my bedside table has yet to collapse under the weight!
Thanks for (re)registering John, and I hope you enjoy your time here.
Thanks also for the Peter Haining/ Anthony R. Rud info.
From the first, I set myself against "literature"; the story was the thing, and no amount of style could persuade me to select a story that lacked genuine, unadulterated horror. For those who wanted something high-brow there was plenty.
