Yesterday, I had the pleasure of participating in the Lovecraft ezine’s weekly pod- and videocast, as the kickoff event for the launch of Sefira and Other Betrayals. As ever, I had a blast talking with Mike Davis and the other participants who were kind enough to give up a couple of hours of their Sunday afternoons and evenings to be there. Here’s a link to the videocast, if you’re so inclined. Our conversation embraced such topics as who will win in the inevitable fight among myself, Laird Barron, and Paul Tremblay; whom you should lay you money on in a battle between Godzilla and Cthulhu; and what Godzilla would sound like with a French accent.
Barron vs. Tremblay, or Godzilla vs. Cthulhu? (Painting by the ever-brilliant Bob Eggleton; buy a poster of the image here).
During the show, I mentioned a number of novels, collections, and journals that are worth a look. I wanted to link to as many of them as I can remember, so here you go:
Dan Chaon Ill Will
Laird Barron Black Mountain
Nathan Ballingrud Wounds
Carrie Laben A Hawk in the Woods
A.C. Wise Catfish Lullaby
Navin Weeraratme Zeelam
S.P. Miskowski The Worst is Yet to Come
Paul Tremblay Growing Things
Robert Wilson Ashes and Entropy
Ellen Datlow Echoes
