New York Times bestselling horror writer Peter Straub states that “there’s something in people that is naturally story-like.” He goes on to illustrate how individuals take “unformed, and chaotic stuff, managing to make sense of it” in their minds.

Straub explains that the world around us is indifferent of one’s existence. We feel what we project from within ourselves. He describes fear’s ability to inhabit anything because it is projected outside of one’s self. This desperation and darkness often evokes great emotion, revealing a deep sense of honest feelings and unconventional beauty.

For the author, horror has the power to evoke a wide range of emotions, unlike any other novel genre, making a reader feel as if they have been through an ordeal or memorable experience that stays in their sub-conscious.
