Nancy Collins ( Nancy Collins , full name - Nancy Averill Collins / Nancy Averill Collins) American writer, working primarily in the horror genre. Aliases: Nanzi Regalia . She was born on September 10 in 1959, grew up in the state of Arkansas, in the countryside. In 1982 she moved to New Orleans. Six years later, she published her debut novel, "In the Night with Sunglasses", which opens the cult cycle about Sonia Blue, the vampire hunter. This clever, engaging book, harmoniously combining elements of urban fantasy and horror, has brought the writer two prestigious genre awards, as well as several nominations. Since then, Collins` novels and collections have been nominated for various awards with enviable consistency (eight times for Locus alone). The next novel, "The Tempter" ("Tempter", 1990) formally continues the vampire theme, but in fact it is an independent horror novel, coolly mixed with voodoo.

Nancy Collins ( Nancy Collins , full name - Nancy Averill Collins / Nancy Averill Collins) American writer, working primarily in the horror genre. Aliases: Nanzi Regalia . She was born on September 10 in 1959, grew up in the state of Arkansas, in the countryside. In 1982 she moved to New Orleans. Six years later, she published her debut novel, "In the Night with Sunglasses", which opens the cult cycle about Sonia Blue, the vampire hunter. This clever, engaging book, harmoniously combining elements of urban fantasy and horror, has brought the writer two prestigious genre awards, as well as several nominations. Since then, Collins` novels and collections have been nominated for various awards with enviable consistency (eight times for Locus alone). The next novel, "The Tempter" ("Tempter", 1990) formally continues the vampire theme, but in fact it is an independent horror novel, coolly mixed with voodoo. Nancy Collins The second and third books about Sona Blue, "Blood!" (1992) and Paint It Black (1995) proved to be just as successful as the debut. In parallel, Collins is working on numerous short stories. The anthologies "Dark Love" (two nominations, one award) and "Forbidden Acts", composed by the writer with two like-minded people, explore the dark sides of the human psyche and sexuality. During this prolific period, Collins also made her mark in the comic book industry, most notably in the Swamp Thing series, which Alan Moore himself worked on at one time. Although there are several purely commercial items in the writer`s portfolio (including novelizations based on the horror movie Destination, the Fantastic Four comic, and the fresh teenage series Vamps, clearly inspired by the success of Stephenie Meyer`s Twilight), there is no doubt about her literary reputation. So, Collins became one of the leaders of the direction "Weird West" ("Strange / Eerie West"), in which Western meets horror, etc. "Southern gothic". First of all, this is the novel "Walking Wolf" and the stories collected in the collections "Knuckles and Tales" (2001) and "Dead Man`s Hand" (2004) A little about Interests of Nancy Collins: * General - Bowling, Dogs, Reading, Action, Hong Kong Horror, Southern Gothic, Noir, Baking, Birdwatching. * Music - Iggy Pop, The Ramones, Marilyn Manson, Rob Zombie, T Rex, Roxy Music and more. * Films - 28 Days Later, Babba Ho-Tep, Bride of Frankenstein, Casablanca, The Dark Knight, The Devil`s Ridge, Doctor Strangelove, Evil Dead, Fight Club, "Kill Bill", "Hellboy", "Reanimator", "Sin City", "Seven", "Texas Chainsaw Massacre" (classic version) and others. * TV shows - "The Avengers", "The Addams Family", "Carnival", "Dexter", "Futurama", "Heroes", "House", "The Office" and others. * Books - "The Killer in Me" by Jim Thompson, "Car Crash" by James Ballard, "The Doll That Ate Its Mother" by Ramsey Campbell, all the works of Flannery O`Connor (one of the founders of "Southern Gothic") and others. Nancy Collins is divorced and currently lives in Atlanta with a friend. Four out of five novels about Sonya Blue, the anthology "Dark Love", as well as individual stories by Collins in anthologies were published in Russian. © Pickman Awards & Awards: [British Fantasy Award 1989] British Fantasy Award, 1989 // Icarus [Bram Stoker Awards 1990] Bram Stoker Awards, 1990 // First Novel -> Wearing sunglasses at night / Sunglasses After Dark (1989) [Lord Ruthven Award 1990] Lord Ruthven Award, 1990 // Fiction -> Sunglasses After Dark (1989)
