Peter Straub on Horror


Head shot: Peter Straub

“. . . telling stories and writing fiction is a way of managing and exploring my own impulses and emotions. I’m not at the mercy of my terrors, my shame. I push the dredged-up emotions into shapes that are enjoyable in the end, even if their content seems violent or disturbing.”

novelist and poet Peter Straub (who died on Sunday, September 4, 2022)

I'd love to hear from you!
