Ballingrud Speaks


October 22, 2013 by Laird

A new interview with Nathan Ballingrud at Weird Fiction Review.

And a reminder that I’ll be in New York tonight at Word.

From the Devil to Cosmic Horrors: A Night of Fears: “Prepare for Halloween with a night of tales of terror! Bring your flashlight and your safety blanket and settle in as readers present stories from old-world gothic to modern horror. The evening features Laird Barron (The Beautiful Thing that Awaits Us All), translator Susan Bernofsky (The Black Spider), Jason Diamond of Vol. 1 Brooklyn, and others.”

    “I have no interest in redeeming any of these characters, necessarily. But we live in a society that encourages us to view each other in simplistic and tribalistic terms, and that leads to an erosion of empathy, which is destructive to the human condition – to our ability to live successfully in an integrated society. It’s important that we look at people we think of as evil or irredeemable, and find the thing inside them that can still be loved. We’re doomed, if we can’t do that.”

    This is what makes Nathan, not just a good writer, but a great writer.
