Happy Halloween! Interview with 2-Time Bram Stoker Award Winner Christopher Golden Author of All Hallows (Replay from Jan 2023‪)‬ The Wrath of the iOtians

    • Books

Happy Halloween from the iOtians! We're celebrating by replaying our most downloaded episode ever! All Hallows takes place on Halloween Night in 1984. Do yourself a favor and read this book after all the trick-or-treaters are done taking your precious candy!

Jake and Ron chat with the New York Times bestseller and two-time Bram Stoker Award winner about his latest novel, All Hallows! The book is set in 1984 in Massachusetts. Since Jake and Christopher both live near the Boston area, they end up talking not only about All Hallows, but about common experiences they had as horror fans growing up in the New England eighties.

At 55, Christopher Golden has been nominated for the British Fantasy Award, the Eisner Award, and multiple Shirley Jackson Awards. He's been nominated for the prestigious Bram Stoker Award 10 times in eight different categories. He's won twice--once for Cut, his excellent edited collection of horror writers on horror film, and more recently for Ararat, his opening salvo in the riveting Ben Walker series. It's likely as not he'll win again--because, like his former podcast co-host Jonathan Maberry, his imagination is seemingly inexhaustible.

Jake first encountered Golden's work in 1997, when his Hellboy novel, The Lost Army, was released by Dark Horse. He immediately recognized that there was at least one writer other than Mike Mignola who really knew how to write one of the great characters in comics. Dark Horse apparently realized it, too, and went on to publish two more of Golden's Hellboy novels. Golden and Mignola together expanded Hellboy's "Otherverse," introducing readers to Joe Golem and the Baltimores.

A complete accounting of Golden's other work would require more time than we have. It would include a stint as a writer for Marvel's Punisher, a series of Buffy the Vampire Slayer tie-Ins, The Body of Evidence series, several series for young adult readers, and a slew of terrific standalone novels, including one of our favorites from last year, The Road of Bones (which you should run out and buy right now ... or after you listen to this interview). This year's All Hallows is set in the same fictional New England town as Golden's 2014 novel Snow Blind. We sat down to talk with Golden about All Hallows, which is releasing on January 24th.
