Peter Straub is a novelist that works in some of the darkest, bloodiest realms of horror fiction. He’s sold millions of books. And after I pressed record, I thought we’d get into his secrets to co-writing two books with Stephen King. Or maybe how he comes up with his stories in the first place. But instead he dropped a detail of a guilty pleasure. A key to his writing ritual that ends with him playing a retired, blind cop.
