First in a series of patreon-only podcasts, exploring the personal history of writers and creators. First up: Laird Barron! How did he become the writer and the man he is today?
“Elation, compulsion, exploration, love and exquisitely timed bullying, a lascivious oyster, a man called Eggplant, the dangers of smelling like honey pudding, the enticement of innocent toadlets, the unending day of deadness. The daughter of a part-time magician and a Las Vegas showgirl turns to science. Destiny points a young man to brassiere design. Suddenly orphaned siblings try to protect their most vulnerable. Fortunes craze in neighbourhoods living cheek-by-jowl. Unintendeds abound, as life cavorts in all its unclassifiable contrariness.”
A Lovecraftian orphanage, secret societies who contract deadly diseases on purpose, a black cat that retrieves the dying, a cannibalistic romance, and a strip club in Purgatory are just a few of the strange tales in this unique collection from Emma J. Gibbon!
Our guest on the latest Lovecraft eZine podcast was Nadia Bulkin, author of the fantastic collection SHE SAID DESTROY. It was a fascinating discussion with a first-rate author of dark fiction.
Knifepoint Horror is one of the finest examples of weird fiction that I have come across. In my opinion, every writer and reader of weird fiction should be paying attention to what author Soren Narnia is doing with this podcast.
Respected as one of today’s leading figures of weird fiction for his striking imagination, versatility, and deeply emotional stories, Jeffrey Thomas here offers up fourteen searing tales.

In the first hour, we talked with author Douglas Wynne about his new Lovecraftian novel BLACK JANUARY.
In the second hour, we discussed some of our favorite weird fiction stories, with a special emphasis on THE WEIRD, a collection of 110 weird fiction stories edited by Jeff and Ann VanderMeer. We also talked about the new creepypasta TV series CHANNEL ZERO.
“almost insentient, almost divine” is a collection that will be treasured by readers for decades to come, and doubtlessly recommended to those looking for an introduction as to what makes this genre special.

“Canadian author Richard Gavin has established himself as a leading contemporary writer of weird fiction. His richly nuanced prose style, his imaginative range, and his shrewdness in the portrayal of character and domestic conflict make his tales far more than mere shudder-coining.”
