"He is according to some the chief inspiration for comedy character Garth Marenghi, a caricature of a self-absorbed horror writer."
"According to his website, Hutson has appeared onstage with British heavy metal band Iron Maiden 13 times."
"During the interview, Hutson describes working on the book Chainsaw Terror; in particular, he mentions that during a horror authors' convention panel, he took glee in describing a scene where a woman gets nailed down to a worktable and is brutally violated with a chainsaw, solely for the joy of leaving fellow author and panel member Clive Barker speechless."
"Despite his books containing frequent passages of vivid and often gory sexual encounters, Shaun Hutson is actually a virgin. Some fans claim that his lack of 'real world' experience can be seen in the somewhat awkward dialogue used during scenes of passion in his books."
