My favourite work of "dark" literature
The world of dark fantasy, the supernatural and the occult have always held a strong attraction for me. To explore the worlds “beyond the veil” and revel in the supernatural mysteries beyond “mundane reality”. I have always been a lover of fantasy, science-fiction and horror, but it is the horror genre that I tend to come back to most.
I’m not really sure why it is, but I’m proud to say that the first story I ever wrote when I was six, was a horror story called The Dangerous World where all my family members, myself included, died as a result of various disasters. Nor can I really explain why most of the stories I wrote throughout my childhood were horror stories filled with demons, undead and gore, and usually ended with the death of the protagonist at the hands of some nefarious entity.
I wasn’t a disturbed or angry child you see, and I was able to live quite a privileged life where I could pursue my passions. And to this day, the most common theme in my dreams is one of horror (usually involving zombies, ghosts, aliens or demons), but to me these are not nightmares but “adventures” I look forward to.
