Welcome to the Ink Heist podcast, which is devoted to dark genre fiction, featuring hosts Rich Duncan and Shane Douglas Keene and a whole bevy of authors and other interesting guests for your listening and enlightening pleasure. We are a very irreverent, often linguistically explicit broadcast so we highly recommend you use discretion when listening around easily influenced young ones or anyone who is easily offended. We would like to thank the band Secret Smoker for allowing us to use their song “Crushed by Air” to kick-off and finish the podcast.
This week, we had a great time talking with horror author Chad Lutzke, whose brand of emotional horror resonates with readers long after the story is over. We got to talk to Chad about his new Crystal Lake Publishing novella The Pale White, how empathy informs his characters, writer collaborations, and some of his upcoming books. We had a blast recording with Chad and are planning a second conversation with him in the near future to take a deeper dive into his works. Shane and I are planning a review of The Pale White, but don’t wait to order your copy. It’s a deeply emotional story that is unlike anything you will read this year. The Pale White is a powerful, must-read story of friendship and survival as three girls – Alex, Stacia, and Kammy – endure the hell of sex trafficking for years until they finally have a chance to escape. Check out our conversation with Chad now right here on Ink Heist or on your favorite streaming service.
