Tonight I was poking around online looking for something interesting when I came across a list of the top 100 scariest books. The number one book by Horror Novel Reviews was Jack Ketchum’s The Girl Next Door.
“I met him at HWC!” is all I could think of. Walking around the convention, Jack Ketchum had the air of a rock star. I had a chance to speak with him outside the hotel as we stood outside watching the cars pass and we talked about cats. Nothing stellar, just how we both liked cats.
Of course, I’ve added The Girl Next Door to my reading list. Next year, if I see Ketchum at StokerCon in Las Vegas I might have some amazing questions to ask about his books and his “writer’s process,” but in the end I will probably still just talk about cats.
Who doesn’t like cats?
