Book Review - Mansfield with Monsters
Debbie: There's a thriving, incredibly inclusive community of New Zealand writers, film-makers, artists and fans of speculative fiction in New Zealand. There are organisations like SpecFicNZ, and get-togethers like this year's Au Contraire convention where like-minded people gather to celebrate the things they love.
Being a part of that diverse community and enjoying the amazing works produced here is a wonderful thing. Are you planning to collaborate again on a book? Matt: We recently completed an adaptation of Mansfield's 'At the Bay' together. It's up on Amazon as an ebook. It's the most ambitious adaptation we've done to date, blending the mythos of HP Lovecraft with Mansfield's writing.
We're also looking into the copyright status of HP Lovecraft's early work, as we're keen to work on a collection of Lovecraft adaptations which bring female protagonists and more modern values to his early works — we're going with "Lovecraft with Ladies" as a working title. It has been a hugely satisfying and successful partnership and one we'd love to continue.
What's on your bedside table? Matt: I used to be a monogamous reader, sticking with one novel until it was finished, but I'm a little more scattergun with my time now. Most of the fiction I've read lately has been by New Zealand authors, and the more New Zealand fiction I read, the more impressed I become by the calibre of writers working in New Zealand.
I'm thoroughly enjoying it; the characters are brilliantly depicted and there's a lot of humour, as well dark and ominous occult goings-on. You are commenting using your WordPress.
