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 David Heska Wanbli Weiden to the show to discuss his latest novel, Winter Counts, which is out now through Ecco. Winter Counts introduces readers to vigilante enforcer Virgil Wounded Horse, a man who is hired to seek justice for those who can’t turn to the tribal council or American legal system. Filled with a cast of memorable characters and tackling important social issues, Winter Counts is almost impossible to put down and easily one of the year’s best crime novels. This an absolute must-add for your shelves and a start to what promises to be a “can’t miss” series. Throughout the course of the episode, we talked about WINTER COUNTS, the evolution of his characters, writing social commentary into fiction, Denver “easter eggs” and so much more. We hope you enjoy this episode as much as we did! Newest Episode:
