2020 Snapshot: Andrew Cull

Andrew Cull is an award-winning writer and horror director. He wrote and directed the horror hit The Possession of David O’Reilly. His story collection Bones was released to acclaim in 2018. It has been described as “a masterclass in emotional cinematic horror fiction.” Andrew lives in Melbourne, Australia. He loves horror and Hitchcock, and, like you, he’s not easily scared. His debut novel Remains is out now.

  1. Tell us about your recent publications/projects?

My debut novel, Remains was released towards the end of last year. It’s a ghost story about a grieving mother and the lengths she will go to attempt to contact her murdered son.

I’m currently writing a short for a charity anthology that’ll be out a bit later this year, and working on HEART, the follow up to my 2018 collection Bones.

  1. What has been the best publishing experience of your career so far?

I think having Remains included on the preliminary ballot for this year’s Stoker Awards has been the highlight of my publishing career so far. I’m not sure anything will top waking up to that news for a while.

  1. Which recent Australian/NZ work would you recommend to international fans interested in expanding their Antipodean spec fic knowledge?

If they haven’t, I’d highly recommend picking up the work of Alan Baxter. He’s recently released a new collection, Served Cold.

I’d also recommend checking out any of the anthologies published by Steve Dillon (Things In The Well). His books benefit numerous great causes, and feature lots of Australia and New Zealand’s best horror writers.
