Unprintable: The LitReactor Podcast Episode 23 - The Halloween Horror Show (Guest: Michael Wilson of This Is Horror)

Every episode, Unprintable will take an irreverent look at books, the publishing industry, reading, writing, and more; featuring the know-it-all geekery of LitReactor Review Editor Cath Murphy, Education Director Rob Hart, Managing Editor Joshua Chaplinsky, Class Facilitator Renee Asher Pickup, and Columnist Brandon Tietz.


Episode 23 - The Halloween Horror Show (Guest: Michael Wilson of This Is Horror)

Yes, I know we're a little late with the festivities, but trust me, it will be well worth it. Because every day is Halloween here at Unprintable—except, of course, when it's Christmas, because that day belongs to Jeebus (although sometimes it can be both!).

News: No news is good news, right? Horror movie recommendations it is!

Reads: Josh continues through the Hyperion Cantos, Renee pays a visit to Christmasland, and our guest develops an unhealthy obsession with Ryu Murakami.

Topic: This Is Horror: the podcast, the small press, the legend.
