It’s Halloween and host Rob Matheny spooks it up with author, editor, and publisher Ross E. Lockhart to talk about the latest Word Horde anthology TALES FROM A TALKING BOARD. We’ll chat about what inspired the horror anthology, we’ll talk about the foundations of the small California-based press, the appeal of creating a well composed anthology, some of Ross's favorite anthologies, the impact of publishing award winning fiction like the Bram Stoker Award-winning Mr. Suicide and The Fisherman, as well as a preview of forthcoming titles. It’s a great conversation with a small press publisher doing big things in the industry. Find Word Horde online at WordHorde.com, or follow Ross on Twitter @LossRockhart!

We kick off Octoborror with the award winning short fiction editor Ellen Datlow! During our chat we talk about the process of creating anthologies, namely Nightshade Book’s latest BEST HORROR OF THE YEAR VOL.8, a compilation of 2015’s best horror stories edited Ellen Datlow. Ellen’s been editing anthologies for over 35 year (which adds up to over 100 titles!) and she just so happened to win her SEVENTH Hugo Award.
