We apologize for the sound quality of the last episode. We’re always experimenting with our hardware and software here at the Strangeville Podcast Network and assure you that this week’s show sounds worlds better.
SPN host of THE QUIET PLACE Jeremy Maddux recently appeared on the JOHN PODESTA’S PIZZA PARTY podcast to discuss bizarro fiction. The conversation quickly turned to me, for some reason, and a lot of shade was thrown.
My book covers (the artists of which have worked with a score of other bizarro and small press horror authors) my editor, the quality of my storytelling (even though the author in question has a lower average rating on Goodreads than I do. His “female” alter-ego pen name has an even worse rating, even after he rated his own books) and of course, my virtue were all criticized.
Jeremy wasn’t asked to, nor was he required to defend me, but he did a great job in doing so anyway. Listen to the interview here for the full context of the discussion. What follows is my response to several of the accusations leveled at me during the show.
Until next time, gang. Keep ranting!
