My Name Is Brian Keene And I Was Sexually Assaulted

I talk about it on tonight’s episode of THE HORROR SHOW WITH BRIAN KEENE. (We also talk about the good and the bad when it comes to HWA, and why I have been so late with manuscript reviews and novel submissions, and Hollywood’s ill-fated attempts to turn THE RISING into a movie, and what Paul Campion and I have planned for film adaptations for DARK HOLLOW and KILL WHITEY). When you listen to tonight’s show, you’ll understand why I’m speaking about it in public now. Everything I am willing to say in public about my experience I say in the episode, so note to media people — please don’t ask me to say more.

What I want you to understand is that this is something that can happen to anyone — male or female, Conservative or Progressive. And I want to echo what I said on the show — when someone tells you they have been sexually assaulted, whether you believe them or not, you owe them the respect of listening to them. Give them that much.

I will be offline from Friday morning until Monday morning, sequestered deep in the mountains of West Virginia, where I’ll be trying out my latest rifle, doing a bit of writing, and showing my eight-year-old son where his family came from — so there may be a delay before your comments on this post are approved. Thank you for your understanding.

Anyway, tonight’s podcast is — I think — our best episode in the two years we’ve been on the air. Listen to it for free.

  1. Mr. Keene,

    this is a huge mayday from Germany. A bunch of fans wants urgent new stuff. We miss your books. Bought all German books of the publishers “Otherworld”, “Heyne” and the “Festa-Verlag”. Now we need more.

    Thanks for listening
    Günther

  2. Unfortunately, I know quite a few people, friends and family, male and female, that have been sexually assaulted in their lives, I have always felt humbled that a person can come to me and speak to me about one of the most traumatizing experiences one can have. For all the unspoken victims, please understand: there is always someone there for you that will listen and help.
