Footsteps in an abandoned holiday resort as the cold weather settles in; a knock on the door of a hut in the middle of an isolated bog; a lane in Rotterdam perceptible to only one inhabitant in the city.

In Cruise of Shadows, Jean Ray began to fully explore the trappings of the ghost story to produce a new brand of horror tale: one that described the lineaments of a universe adjacent to this one, in which objects sweat hatred and fear, and where the individual must face the unknown in utter isolation.

The above quote is about one of Jean Ray‘s books, Cruise of Shadows. I recently interviewed author Scott Nicolay about his translation of Jean Ray’s books, and about Scott’s latest collection, And at My Back I Always Hear.

We also discussed Research Into Marginal Living: The Selected Stories of John D. Keefauver, edited by Scott Nicolay, with an introduction by Joe Lansdale. (This book needs more Amazon reviews! If you enjoy the book, please give it some review love on Amazon.)

I strongly feel that we owe Scott Nicolay a debt of gratitude for translating the weird fiction stories of Jean Ray.

Be sure to read Scott’s newest book: And at My Back I Always Hear.

Enjoy the interview!
