Do you remember the first story you ever read, and the impact it had on you?
When I was young I enjoyed Point Horrors but the first adult book I read and fell in love with was Richard Laymon's Darkness Tell Us. I bought it at a jumble sale for 10p because I needed to read a book and write a review for a 3rd of my exam score. It started me on a mission to read everything he had written before moving onto other horror authors.
