  • Note: The archived interview linked above was conducted in 2000 according to a 7/7/05 message from the interviewer, Mark Leslie, on "Back in the fall of 2000, I had the pleasure of conducting a series of email interviews with Richard Laymon which was supposed to run in FLESH & BLOOD magazine. Unfortunately, as the issue with the interview was ready to go to print, Richard passed away. The editor pulled the story, sensitive to the thought that people might think running an interview at that time was "using" Richard's death to sell more magazines. The interview has remained unpublished until I offered it to Leisure Books last week. I'd been seeking a place where the interview could be seen by Laymon fans, and, like the editor of Flesh & Blood, wasn't interested in the money -- I just wanted Laymon fans to be able to catch an insight into the terrific person behind the horror and mayhem, especially since it was likely one of the last interviews he gave."
