    If you don’t know the name “Laird Barron,” then you probably haven’t experienced true cosmic horror. Check this out!

    Thanks for sharing this interview. I enjoy learning more of the process people I admire through different mediums practice. As a fighter, watching or seeing how others train is neat. The fights themselves are alright but it’s the training I dig most. So these little glimpses are neat to read.
    Also, just curious. Why is there relatively little mention from others regarding “The Light is the Darkness” in talk of what you’ve published? That story is the first time I’ve read the last page of something and immediately started over at page one. It’s a great story. If that’s a sore spot, a private message or none is fine.
    It resonated beautifully with me and so I become bothered when it’s not mentioned along side the other works by others.
    Thank you.

      I think fighting is a useful analogy. As for The Light…it originally appeared as a deluxe and super rare edition. The paperback and e-edition didn’t come out until 2012. I’ve noticed its sales have been steady. One of these days I’ll put together a two or three volume set of novellas/short novels and include The Light…as an anchor.
