Local legend Al Stilley has published a piece in the latest installment of The Southsider Voice, covering the release of The Skeleton Melodies (Hippocampus Press). Our discussion touched on several topics (Ghouljaw and Other Stories…the Nightmare Theater horror host, Sammy Terry…Dark Shadows…). I’m grateful to have spent some time with Al.
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.
