Tune in and harass me on Friday, May 21 at 5 pm MT, when I talk about biological horror, my novella MALINAE, and Denver Horror Collective on Colorado Festival of Horror Live & Undead!
(Originally scheduled for last week but the host was bitten by a demon!)
A kind and flattering back-of-book blurb for MALINAE by the formidable horror author, Matthew Lyons.
Candace Nola with Uncomfortably Dark calls MALINAE, “a disturbing story that masterfully weaves a large helping of horror into an already terrifying take on aging and Alzheimer’s.”
Read the full review here.
Candace Nola from Uncomfortably Dark emailed me several excellent interview questions about my horror writing and I had to go and ruin everything.
Don’t believe me? Here are a few quotes from the interview.
UNCOMFORTABLY DARK: What made you want to become a writer and when did you first begin writing professionally?
JOSH: I had no choice in the matter. The demons that incubated and hatched in my head demanded an outlet, and I was powerless to resist. I’m no more a professional writer than a hostage is a professional captive.
UNCOMFORTABLY DARK: What most inspires your ideas for your stories, real-life, bits of dreams or something else?
JOSH: A chemical imbalance, I’m assuming.
UNCOMFORTABLY DARK: What legacy would you like to leave behind?
JOSH: A general sense of unease.
Joy Yehle and Brenda Tolian had me on their new horror fiction podcast, BURIAL PLOT, to talk about the origins of Denver Horror Collective, worshiping viruses as gods, and the inspiration behind MALINAE.
