12003146_879319075487621_892517258321694034_nBlurring The Line is the new anthology of horror fiction and non-fiction, edited by award-winning editor Marty Young, published by Cohesion Press. You can get your copy here or anywhere you normally buy books (the print edition is coming any day now).

To help people learn a bit more about it, I’ve arranged for each fiction contributor to answer the same five questions, and I’ll be running these mini interviews every weekday now that the book is available.

Today, it’s:

Charles L Grant

Unfortunately, Charles died in 2006, but it’s a real treat to have one of his stories in Blurring The Line. In lieu of an interview, here’s his bio, and follow the links to find more of his work.

Charles L Grant photo by Mary JaschCharles L. Grant was well known for his “quiet horror” and for editing the award-winning Shadows anthologies. He received the British Fantasy Society’s Special Award in 1987 for life achievement; in 2000, he was the recipient of the Lifetime Achievement Award from the Horror Writers Association. Other awards include two Nebula Awards and three World Fantasy Awards for writing and editing. He wrote in many different genres under assorted names (many with a water reference). His numerous novels are being brought out in e-book format from Crossroad Press and Necon Ebooks.

Charlie died from a lengthy illness on September 15, 2006, just three days after his birthday. He lived in Newton, NJ, and was married to writer/editor Kathryn Ptacek for nearly twenty-five years.
