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 welcome John Hornor Jacobs to the show to promote his latest release, Murder Ballads and Other Horrific Tales, which is out now through Journalstone. Throughout the course of the episode, we talked about the influence of music in his works, his upcoming project A Gentleman of Carpathia, the strengths of the novella format, and had a great discussion about foreign films. We hope you enjoy this episode as much as we did!
