Johnny is a British Fantasy Award winning editor and author. His first book, 2010’s Back From the Dead: The Legacy of the Pan Book of Horror Stories led him directly to working with Pan Macmillan and bringing out the very first volume of The Pan Book of Horror Storiesoriginally published in 1959. From there he created the critically acclaimed Dead Funny: Horror Stories by Comedians (co-edited with Robin Ince), several volumes of Best British Horror and brought to print many lost works of Victorian fiction by female writers. He is also the author of three collections and one novel. He lives in the South West of England.
I’ll be talking to Johnny about his books, and about horror writing in general. And, of course, he’ll be sharing his selections for this week’s Apocalypse Books.
