Horror making a comeback?

Last week I asked Shona Martyn, publishing director at HarperCollins, what her take was on the likelihood of a horror comeback.

She said there was no sign of Australia following the lead of the US and UK, but that it could just be a matter of time.

Agent Sydney (of the recently launched Call My Agent! blog) says horror will probably always be a niche market.

You can read Agent Sydney's full response here.

I think Sydney's right - horror is gonna remain a niche market, but that's fine really. If it was to hit the mainstream there would be a lot of things we wouldn't get away with writin'.

:o)

Yeah, I just wish it wasn't quite so niche. Australia is a small market to begin with.
