Giving voice to the writers I want to hear from

Mr. Frank is shining a light on the cutting-edge of weird and bizarro writing, showing that these guys are more than just fart jokes and shock value. Quality conversations about fearless writers.

Um yah ,

Holy crap!

I have been a lifelong fan of horror and weird fiction. But I had no idea about bizarro. Thanks to this podcast and Frank's in-depth interviews, I have been scooping up all kinds of new books and enjoying the crap out of them. The authors are really interesting and Frank provides the perfect amount of historical perspective for newbies like me. I can't wait for each new episode.
