Our ongoing series of talks by some of today’s most exciting writers on the nuts and bolts of creating great fiction is presented in partnership with One Story.

In this master class, Peter Straub (A Dark Matter), who is best known as an award-winning master of horror but whose work transcends limited and pigeonholing discussions about genre, shared his thoughts on writing compelling fiction of all kinds.


Peter Straub is the author of seventeen novels, which have been translated into more than twenty languages. They include Ghost Story, Koko, Mr. X,  two collaborations with Stephen King, The Talisman and Black House, and his most recent, In the Night Room. He has written two volumes of poetry and two collections of short fiction, and he edited the Library of America’s edition of H. P. Lovecraft’s Tales. He has won the British Fantasy Award, six Bram Stoker Awards, two International Horror Guild Awards, and two World Fantasy Awards. In 1998, he was named Grand Master at the World Horror Convention.
