Wasn’t quite ready to announce this yet, but the news slipped out today and so… coming very soon, THE HORROR SHOW, a free weekly podcast hosted by me. In each episode, I’ll do an in-depth interview with a special guest, and we’ll also examine the latest news and controversies from the world of horror fiction, movies, comic books, and games, as well as offering historical perspectives on the genre. Think The Howard Stern Show meets WTF with Marc Maron meets Tell ‘Em Steve Dave meets Tom Monteleone’s M.A.F.I.A. meets Inside the Actor’s Studio. But focusing on the horror genre.
I’ve been secretly planning this for the past year. The website and studio are still under construction. Waiting on a few more pieces of equipment for the studio. We’ve set up a Twitter page (but will probably forgo other social media). We hope to record a pilot episode this weekend (weather permitting) which probably won’t feature a special guest but will give you a taste of what to expect. But that pilot (and subsequent episodes) won’t go live until I’m happy with them.
This (and things like THE SEVEN: THE LABYRINTH, Book 1) are all part of a plan that close friends of mine have heard me refer to in whispered mumblings as “The Endgame”. It’s a plan I came up with a year ago, and have been slowly implementing. You’ve probably already noticed less Blogging and less social media participation since Jan 1st (unless it’s a news announcement like this). That is by design, and long overdue (a fact that was personally reinforced for me recently after interacting with a pair of brain-damaged Tribbles). But I digress. Where was I? Oh, yes. This is all by design, and will further allow me to focus on writing and contractual obligations. Expect that to increase significantly once THE HORROR SHOW goes live. I’m not going quiet, but I am changing the venue.
