Back when I was 18, I got lucky and did a postal interview with Richard Laymon for a fanzine I was writing at the time, called FRENZY.
Recently, I rediscovered that interview and the fanzine issue, in my parents attic. The Mighty Jim McLeoujd at GINGER NUTS OF HORROR has very kindly made a bit of a big deal of it, reprinting my interview in full, with a new intro by me, and surrounding the whoel thing with contributions by good folks who knew Richard, and/or were influenced by him.
The interview can be found HERE. The supoprting bits and pieces by Brian Keene, Sheri White, James Moore, Richard Chizmar, Bryan Smith and Jonathan Janz can be foujnd HERE. Go read it, it’s a lovely piece about a lovely man. Then give his books a try if you haven’t already.
