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 welcome Hunter Shea back to the show to discuss his latest novel, Misfits, which is out now through Flame Tree Press. Hunter was one of the first guests on the Ink Heist podcast back when we launched and we’ve been fans of his books for years. While Hunter has written a variety of different styles of horror novels, he is perhaps best known for cryptid and Creature Feature work and with Misfits, Hunter dials up one of his bloodiest and most extreme books yet. Hunter is a horror fanatic and he uses his encyclopedic knowledge of the genre to craft action-packed stories that are a blast to read and almost impossible to put down. He’s also the co-host of the Monster Men and Final Guys podcasts, which are loaded with great recommendations and a must-listen for any horror fan. We’ve known Hunter for years and that led to an absolutely hilarious conversation that had us all laughing until stomachs hurt. Throughout the course of the episode, we talked about Misfits, Melonheads, ilk milk, his time playing in bands and so much more. We had a a lot of fun recording this episode and we hope you guys enjoy it as much as we did!
