Such a Nightmare host Katherine A. Troyer chats with Mike Thorn about the relationship between writing fiction and writing criticism, real-life fears, and much more.
Eric Raglin talks to Mike Thorn about the horrors of academia, formative metalhead experiences, and addiction in horror fiction. In the second half of the episode, they have a spoiler-filled discussion of “A New Kind of Drug” from Thorn’s collection Darkest Hours (Raglin provides a warning in advance, and the rest of the episode is spoiler-free).
“Many of the stories in this collection concern the topics of academia (with academics being alternately portrayed as buffoonish or somewhat sinister) and drinking/drunkenness; the two are most amusingly combined in the clever ‘Speaking of Ghosts.'”
