The small press fiction horror community acts without consequence. This year alone we’ve seen a Jack Ketchum tribute anthology torpedoed because of a “lack of vaginas” and the Splatter Club group be steamrolled over in favor of the Deadite Press “old guard” launching the Splatter Punk Awards. Enough is enough. I take the whole scene down in 3 acts.
Act 1 A message to the new blood:
Act 2 On KillerCon and the Splatterpunk Award:
Act 3 Deadite Press, Hell Bound Books and the incestuous horror community:
Kevin and Jeremy return for another action packed episode of READING TO STRANGERS! The boys get us up to speed on all things strange before jumping into part 2 of the serial saga of THE HUMANS UNDER THE BED!
Returning from break, the perverted duo jump right into Kevin Strange’s alternate dimension where infamous gunman Dylann Roof proudly displays an Edward Lee horror novel on his social media instead of a confederate flag. They discuss the many ways our culture would react to such a revelation and then illustrate the blatant hypocrisy that many in the publishing industry display when virtue signalling for the removal of things like the confederate flag from online retail stores.
After a quick preview of next week’s show “Pop Culture Convention Survival Guide for White Guys” they end the show.
