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 Jonathan Janz to the show to discuss his latest novel, The Raven, which is out now through Flame Tree Press. The Raven is an action-packed journey through a post-apocalyptic nightmare world where familiar monsters – werewolves, vampires, witches, satyrs- rule the world. Dez McClane doesn’t have any special powers, but that doesn’t stop him from setting out on a quest for justice. Seriously, this book has everything a horror fan could ever want and is a pulse-pounding thrillride from start to finish. Throughout the course of the episode, we talked about The Raven, relationships, bleak endings, some exciting news about Halloween Gods and so much more. If you want to check out the hilarious blog post from Janz’s wife that Shane references in this episode, you can check that out here: Chicken Curry, Boy Pee, and Not Killing Your Spouse. We hope you enjoy this episode as much as we did!
