Five Question Friday: Barry Napier

Barry Napier's fiction and poetry has appeared in more than 20 online and print publications. His dark fiction collection Debris is available through Library of Horror Press and limited edition chapbook The Final Study of Cooper M. Reid was released by Strange Publications in May. In 2011, Barry's novel, The Bleeding Room, will be published by Graveside Tales.

Barry enjoys coffee, minimalist ambient music and irony.

1. If your books could only have single color covers, what color would it be?

A medium tone of gray.

2. Pick a character from anything you've written. Who is it, and what are his/her top five movies?

Cooper M. Reid’s top 5 movies are

Donnie Darko
2001: A Space Odyssey
The Mothman Prophecies
Weekend at Bernie’s

3. If aliens landed in front of you and, in exchange for anything you desire, offered you any job on their planet, what would you choose?

Still a writer, I think.

4. What three things are always in your refrigerator?


5. Is the book always better than the movie?

I would love to say yes, but Cooper’s previously mentioned list proves that this is not the case (see Contact and The Mothman Prophecies, for instance)

A cool set of questions and answers. :-)

I just finished reading "Cooper," and it was fantastic. Please, anyone on the fence, do yourself a favor and buy it.

Thanks, guys

After reading Cooper, I am somehow not surprised about his favorite movies. Pleased, but not surprised!
