Graham Masterton: One Hungry Writer

I’m a fan of anthology horror series. I’m a fan of Terence Stamp (“Kneel before Zod, Jor-El!”). And I’m a fan of Graham Masterton. You can imagine my delight when I stumbled upon a relatively little-known horror series (at least I hadn’t heard of it before Netflix suggested it, so it was little-known to me) called The Hunger, starring Terence Stamp as the host with not one, not two, but three episodes based on short stories by Graham Masterton.

The Hunger ran for two seasons on Showtime between 1997 and 2000. And my favorite episode (so far–I haven’t watched them all) is “The Secret of Shih-Tan,” based on Masterton’s short story of the same name, in which a gourmet chef is offered a boatload of money to make a meal from a legendary cook book.

Graham Masterton is just one of the authors represented in the upcoming anthology, A Feast of Frights from The Horror Zine. His contribution, “What the Dark Does,” is a previously unpublished short story written especially for A Feast of Frights.  Other writing luminaries contributing to the book include Simon Clark, Tom Piccirilli, Susie Moloney, Ramsey Campbell, and Joe R. Lansdale. Oh, and my story, “Clawed Sod,” will also appear. Look for A Feast of Frights this spring at Amazon.com and Smashwords.com or wherever paperbacks and ebooks are sold.
