David Brian (davidbrian) | 1612 comments Some interesting motivations being expressed there. I used to love the old horror movies that Hammer & Universal put out.

The works of Lovecraft, Russell, Stoker, and Herbert presented me my first forays into the world of the horror novel.

I also gained a huge amount of satisfaction from reading Strange Tales magazine, & Weird Tales magazine.

William (williemeikle) Doesn't surprise me at all. Neither of them have ever made any secret of their influences...
