Horror, fantasy and sci-fi are the genres that attract the largest number of geniuses.


Background Information

Pulp writer, Robert E. Howard, introduced me to the realm of fantasy when I picked up my first s&s story, "Beyond the Black River". Since then, there was no looking back. H.P Lovecraft, Edgar Allen Poe, and Anne Rice have all influenced me; George Orwell and Aldous Huxley taught me how to write forward looking and specualtive genre fiction. Jeff Shaara proved that historical fiction can be informative, and fun.

Quotes by Robert E Howard

“Do you try to write like the guys who write for the magazines you write for?” Clyde asked.

“Hell, no,” Bob was emphatic about that. “I let them try to write like me.”

 

“I don’t think you’re going to like ol’ Conan. His struggle is big, uncomplicated with civilized standards. The people who read my stuff want to get away from this modern, complicated world with its hypocrisy, its cruelty, its god-eat-dog life. They want to go back to the origin of the human race. The civilization we live in is a hell of a lot more sinister than the time I write about. In those days, girl, men were men and women were women. They struggled to stay alive, but the struggle was worth it.”

 

It overwhelmed me. “How do you know so much about him-Jenghiz Khan? History books don’t tell you these things. History books don’t describe. They recount.”

“I was there, girl.” Exultantly. “I rode with Jenghiz Khan.”
