A few years ago, I acquired an original manuscript of Mr. Cave’s and it’s like looking at artwork. Here’s an interesting interview (PDF)—in 1996 Cave discussed his early career working in pulp: An Interview with Hugh B. Cave by Timothy Ray Dill.

What scares me? Voodoo. Ever see that episode of Wise Guy—the rat, cigar & ceremony? Or how about The Believers at the party and then the drumming begins? When my nephews were going to Haiti for spring break this year, I told them some of Hugh B. Cave’s stories of the zombie men of Haiti carrying enormous logs for miles and miles, hours and hours…

Are you sure Mr. Cave passed away? Because I envision him being a bit “undead”—and still typing.
