Do not be afraid. Or, be a little afraid. I talk a bit about my horror film/fiction upbringing (oh the horrah!) , my previous collections, the upcoming Phantom anthology I co-edited, Lethem’s MOTHERLESS BROOKLYN, why narcolepsy, where’s my uvula, and the Shirley Jackson Awards.
“I have no personal experience with narcolepsy, but during the mid-to-late 90s I actually suffered from a sleep disorder: sleep apnea. There was a solid two-to-three year stretch when I never really got a good night’s sleep because I would stop breathing, and then would wake up, gasping for breath. Not fun.”
