Ian dabbled in horror fiction in the early 90s before writing for and editing music fanzines. He later adjudicated theatre productions for the Greater Manchester Drama Federation but enjoys film analysis most. Over the last five years he has become a regular writer and editorial team member of the We Belong Dead magazine and contributed to all of their book releases. This has led to writing from Dez Skinn’s Halls of Horror, Allan Bryce’s Dark Side and Hemlock’s Fantastic Fifties, amongst others. He is now getting back into horror fiction with stories featuring in Volumes 3, 4 and 5 of the BHF Book of Horror Stories.
All Sorts of Things Might Happen: The Films of Jenny Agutter is his first solo book, published by We Belong Dead, and will be followed by a book on Robert Shaw at some point in the not too distant future.
I’ll be talking to Ian about All Sorts of Things Might Happen, and about horror writing more generally. And, of course, he’ll be sharing his selections for this week’s Apocalypse Books.
