Welcome to the Ink Heist podcast, which is devoted to dark genre fiction, featuring hosts Rich Duncan, Shane Douglas Keene, Laurel Hightower 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’re excited to have the opportunity to chat with Alan Baxter, who has written numerous works of genre-bending dark fiction including his most recent short story collection Served Cold and the blood-soaked Creature Feature The Roo. Alan is one of our favorite writers and we love the way he blends various genres in his work to great gripping stories that keep you on the edge of your seat. Also, as big fans of Manifest Recall, we were thrilled to hear Alan was revisiting Eli Carver in a follow up novella, Recall Night, later this year. We had a lot of fun hanging out with Alan this week and can’t wait to have him on again in the future! During this episode, we talked about how he got involved in martial arts, The Australian Shadows Award, Served Cold, how he started working with Grey Matter Press, working with different publishers, the Horror scene in Australia, The Roo, sequels and so much more. Check out our conversation with Alan Baxter now right here on Ink Heist or on your favorite streaming service.
