Dean Koontz may be insane

Dean Koontz is a bestselling horror or ‘dark thriller’ writer. He has a website. On this website he has now posted what may be (and I appreciate this is a big claim, given the amount of oddball stuff there is on the internet) the single craziest thing I have ever seen on the web: an animated conversation with his dead dog. Really, it defies summary. If this is an example of what an author’s life does to an author, it may make would-be writers think long and hard about their prospective career. For that reason alone I recommend you check the link. [AR]

    It’s difficult to decide what’s the nuttiest part of the conversation. And that’s if you can get over the premise in the first place. I notice there’s a whole archive of (presumably pre-death) conversations between Dean and Trixie. Perhaps the long hard think here should be about the fact that it’s a good idea for writers to have jobs that get them out of the house, no matter how wealthy their crappy horror novels make them.

    I think it’s brilliant!
    The cheap, nasty, ‘face you right in the eye’ animation, that cloying sentimentality that makes you want to painfully regurgitate your own last dead dog –
    My sincered thanks to Dean – this has encouraged me to carry on writing until I reach the pits of numbed insanity, a level I never dreamed would be possible – until now……………………
