Major props to Mike Davis and his team for a fun and engaging conversation at the Lovecraft eZine Podcast. You can catch the episode here. Despite a minor (and temporary) connectivity glitch on my end, we were able to discuss a number elements which comprise The Skeleton Melodies, as well as some of the formative drivers of my fiction. Among the mentions: the influential novel Summer of Night, the effect of creature-feature host, Sammy Terry, and little name-dropping (among others) on my colleagues Adam Golaski and C.M. Muller.
Today’s presented an opportune confluence: Not only is it release day of The Skeleton Melodies (Hippocampus Press), but the insanely eclectic Curtis M. Lawson has released an hour-long bonus episode for his Wyrd Transmissions podcast. “The Skeleton Melodies and Writing Lessons From the Kitchen” is now available. “In honor of his new collection which comes out today,” writes Lawson, “I have uploaded a bonus episode of Wyrd Transmissions with author Clint Smith. Clint and I talk about The Skeleton Melodies, cooking, thrash metal, and a whole lot more!”
