There’s a revealing review of The Skeleton Melodies courtesy of Lou Pendergrast at More2Read: Must Read Books. “Pitting characters of various walks of life against terrors and dilemmas…through a modern weird horror telling, ancient and modern aspects fused with a few stories like a Flannery O’Connor and John Cheever tragedy with a horror mutation.” Pendergrast writes. “These tales will bring you to certain places with haunting remnants remaining and with this author the weird modern metamorphosis continues…”
The review is also available on Goodreads:
It was a privilege to participate in episode four of The Night Parlor, author Joshua Rex‘s new podcast venture.
The podcast holds tremendous promise in both being helmed by Rex (What’s Coming For You and A Mighty Word), but both prior to and following our discussion, Rex provide some earnest insight into the show’s intent and his goal of being a better listener. With the privilege of participating in the fourth episode, Rex has previously interviewed Curtis Lawson (Devil’s Night), Christa Carmen (Something Borrowed, Something Blood-Soaked), and members of the band Irish Lights, Benjamin Fox and Gordon Cooper. Rex used the term “polymath” in reference to some of my interests and avocations, but the description really is reciprocal when examining Rex’s expansive provinces of creativity. If you’re unfamiliar with this writer and artistic pantologist, get acquainted by listening to The Night Parlor.
