    A must read for horror writers

    Reviewed for MonsterLibrarian.com

    Imagine taking a college writing class where each day a new, experienced writer shuffles in, lectures the class on a new aspect of storytelling and writing, before walking away without another word, leaving the budding writers to digest and utilize the information as they like. Or perhaps two walk in, one interviewing the other, leaving you privy to what seems like intimate, insider knowledge. This is Writers Workshop of Horror. A comprehensive collection of essays on the writing process, each with a different style and voice, all merely suggesting to the reader how things might be done. A quiet relaying of information and experience, with no distractions, no argumentative interruptions and no demand to follow exactly in the teacher's footsteps.
    Writers Workshop of Horror has a lot to offer to new and even experienced authors, without the drama or distraction of a tradition writing class or workshop. Each author's voice comes through with strength and clarity. Priceless information and experience, not just for horror writers, but for all writers in general, sit on these pages. More helpful than most how to writing books out there (as long as you can tolerate sometimes gruesome examples of storytelling concepts) this book should be an essential resource for all libraries wishing to support writers, whether hobbyists or pros.

    A helpful resource

    I am a developing horror/supernatural/speculative fiction writer. I believe you cannot learn too much about our craft. The advice provided by published authors was informative and enlightening. Because this resource deals specifically with horror, it address the unique points of this genre.
