It's not everyday that you get to meet one of your heroes, let alone be given the chance to sit down and have a fabulous chat with them.
So when I was asked if I would like to interview Tamara Thorne and Alistair Cross. I jumped at the the chance. I can still remember finding Panic and Thunder Road hiding in the shelves of St Andrews library during the mid 1990's a time when excellent horror was very hard to find.
Tamara has now teamed up with fellow scribe Alistair Cross to co-author Grandma's Rack, and a new serial novel Belinda.
So why don't you go and grab a drink and sit down and read one of the most in depth and extensive interviews I have ever had the honour of doing.

It' is a great honour to welcome Nick Cutter author of the rather brilliant The Troop to Ginger Nuts of Horror . The Troop could very well be the big mainstream horror success of the year. A high octane horror novel with some exquisitely over the top gross out horror, The Troop could very well be the book that puts on horror back on the shelf.
Read on for a rather splendid in-depth interview where we discuss characterization verses plot, names and the state of the genre.
