I absolutely loved this book. I love reading the history and facts behind great horror writers and why they write what they write, how they write them, and what motivates them. This volume spans different time periods and shows the highlights. The beginnings of different publications, the beginnings of now famous writers, actors, and artists is all so fascinating to read. I learned quite a lot from this book and I would highly recommend it to, not only horror writers, but horror buffs in general. It covers horror, fantasy, and science fiction in movies, art, comics, as well as, of course, books. This is definitely a book worth having.
