I had the pleasure of being a guest on the Martin Lastrapes Show Podcast Hour and let me just say it was a hell of a lot of fun! Martin, being a fellow horror author, was just a doll. We spent about 90 minutes talking about writing, the macabre, publishing, and everything in between.
My introduction to Martin Lastrapes was in 2012 when I first read his novel, Inside the Outside. I absolutely loved it and shelved the book with my other horror tomes (yes, there is a very special shelf in my house dedicated to this genre). Then in September 2014, I watched Joanna Penn’s interview with Martin and remembered, “Hey, that’s the dude who wrote that awesome book with cannibalism”. Disclaimer: I am not a cannibal (and not a fan of red meat), but I have been on a cannibal kick because my current novel-in-progress delves into cannibalism. I enjoyed Joanna’s interview with Martin. Much of what he said I found to be akin to my own writing process and thoughts on the horror genre. It inspired me to write a review of his interview, which is titled “What’s for Dinner? Literary Horror, Cannibals, and Vampires“.
Well, Martin read that post, and my blog, AND The Sarcastic Muse! Then he reached out to see if I would be interested in doing a podcast episode with him (to which I responded with an enthusiastic “YES”).
So without further ado, here is my episode of The Martin Lastrapes Show Podcast Hour:
