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 have a very special episode of the show as we celebrate the upcoming release of Laurel Hightower’s stunning new novella, Crossroads, which hits shelves August 10 through Off Limits Press. This also marks the very first episode of a BRAND NEW segment called “Unfuck That with Shane Douglas Keene” where Shane will be doing live book review discussions with different guest hosts from the horror community. I was honored to be the first guest and I think you guys are going to love this segment! Join us as we discuss the emotional, gut-wrenching story about the lengths a mother is willing to go in an effort to stay connected to her son. We’ll talk a little bit about the story, how it made us feel and why we think it’s an essential addition to your bookshelves. Also, we celebrate Laurel’s one year anniversary of appearing on Ink Heist! She’s a great friend and having her on the Ink Heist team has been an absolute blast. She’s taken the show to another level and Ink Heist wouldn’t be the same without her contributions.
