What Horror Looks Likes is shutting its doors for good

It was good while it lasted but the time has come to shut it down. Not sure if this is permanent but real life has crept in and has made it impossible for us to give the attention these great works deserve.

We will continue to promote the great horror and indie content on our facebook and twitter pages.

Thank you all

Tell us a little bit about yourself.
My name's Michael. I live in the UK, not too far from London. I've lived here for my entire life and hope to live somewhere different at some point. Maybe California, maybe New Zealand, maybe India. I have a son aged three and a daughter due in march. Fitting writing around a family and a full time job is tiring, but I couldn't be without it. 

What made you want to become a writer?
Haha. When I was a teenager, I got into MCing. I realized I wasn't any good, but I liked the poetry side of it. I continued writing poetry, which quickly turned into short stories and then novels. I realized the stories were waiting for me to catch up. 

What authors have influenced your writing style?

Cormac McCarthy and Irvine Welsh. I like the sparseness of McCarthy's work and the black humor of Irvine Welsh - I think it's the Scottish in me.

Author interview with J.C. Michael

What Horror Looks Like sits down with this dark fantasy author to discuss the details of his writings and what exactly makes him tick.

“In “Discoredia,” J C Michael unleashes upon ordinary, unsuspecting characters a fiendish plot that only maestros such as Bentley Little and Michael Slade could rival.”
~ Dean Lombardo, author of Space Games

“J.C. Michael’s brilliant novel, Discoredia, is a literal trip into the abyss echoing with the screams of those classic movies from the 80s where the big bad was bigger than life, unrepentantly evil, and no one was safe. By the time Michael’s 200 beat-per-minute pandemonium kicks in it’s too late to do anything but keep rolling and pray you make it to the last track.”
~ Bracken MacLeod, author of Mountain Home

“J. C. Michael’s Discoredia is the ballroom blitz from Hell. Michael’s novel of sex, drugs, music and evil pulls you in seductively, then turns the amp up to 11. With a silky, snaky style reminiscent of Clive Barker, Michael weaves a tale that takes recreational drug use to a whole new, terrifying level. The book moves at a terrific pace, to the THUMP THUMP THUMP of dance music. And all the time, in the background, there is an elegant, sophisticated evil DJing the entire rave.”
~ John F.D. Taff, author of Little Deaths

“Fantastic. Epic. I’ve done a lot of drugs, and wrote my share of stories, but never have they both danced together in the darkness such as in Discoredia.”
~Mark Matthews, author of On the Lips of Children

“Discoredia will take you on a crazy ride to hell and back, if you’re ballsy enough to take on this awesome book.”
~ Claire Riley, author of Limerence
