Experience in the area

DUE TO LENGTHY ILLNESS, I AM NOT ANSWERING ANY QUESTIONS UNTIL FURTHER NOTICE. I APOLOGIZE. Far too many years reading and writing scary stuff. I tend to the mainstream, but do enjoy the quirky cult type as well, especially cheap paperback kinds. There si some stuff that I won't touch with a 50 foot pole, but what I don't know I will go to efforts to find it out or at the very least, direct you in the right direction. I am very cynical, so if you want me to review stuff or give my opinion, then don't expect it to be an optimistic one.

What do you like about this subject?

Everything

What do you still hope to achieve/learn in this field?

The boundaries of possibility are not as restrictive as some think. But how far into the pits of depravity and despair will I need to sink to get my answers?

Something interesting about this subject that others may not know:

Some of the finest horror tales were written by the ancient Greeks- only they called them tragedies.
