Questions by Arlene Russo, editor, Bite Me Magazine


Q: What is the last thing you would do if you had five minutes to live?

Mark Benecke: Grab the editor of Bite Me and invite her for a final drink.

Q: What is the last thing you would do if you came face to face with a real vampire?

Give him a copy of my book The Dream of Eternal Life (Columbia University Press, 2002). He/she might not get the point, however.

Q: What is the last thing you think of before you turn out the light?

Will my glasses fall down from the specter? (Explanation: To avoid crumbling my glasses at night or in the morning, I put them in the eye socket of a red plastic specter that is mounted to the wall over my bed.)

Q: What is the last book you read?

It was more staring than reading it. The Japanese translator of one of my books sent me copies of his notes -- in Japanese text.

Q: What is the last horror film you watched?

Apart from Not A Girl/Crossroads starring Britney Spears, Wishmaster 2 and Eyes Wide Shut. Plus, I watched some of the alleged "Snuff" stuff for an article in the Archives of Criminology.

Q: When was the last time you were scared?

When I found out that the landlord isolated the drainpipes in the basement with asbestos.

Q: Who is the last person you would want to meet in a dark alley?

My insurance company sales guy.

Q: What would you like your last words to be?

Hello, flies.
