John Linwood Grant

John Linwood Grant lives in Yorkshire with a pack of lurchers and a beard. He may also have a family. He has an obsession with Edwardian horror and alienation, but occasionally leaves his comfort zone for explorations of contemporary darkness.

What’s your Zodiac sign?

Leo.

What’s your favorite thing from the 1970s and why?

The music. Being in my teens back then, it formed a soundtrack to my formative years, still dominating every mood and moment even now.

dvd-coverWhat is your favorite 1970s horror movie? What do you like about it?

Blood on Satan’s Claw. A perfect glimpse of English folk-horror, rooted in the land and disturbing.

What is your favorite 1970s song?

David Bowie, “The Man Who Sold the World”

Choose one: Rock, Power Pop, Disco, or Punk. Explain your decision!

Rock, because it opened up so many sub-genres and movements, including metal. And I can’t dance but I can nod my head violently.

What do you dread most about the 1970s?

The wallpapers. The black and tangerine, beige and purple geometric wallpapers.

Choose one: Plaid, polyester, denim or satin. Explain your choice!

Denim. I’ve lived for years with large mad lurchers. They’re wonderful dogs, but little else survives living, walking and running with them.

What upcoming projects are you working on?

Too many. I’m busy writing dark Edwardian stories of psychic terror, launching a new Occult Detective Quarterly and trying to control greydogtales.com, my eccentric site on weird fiction and art. And I have an African Weird series and more Edimmu tales in progress.
