Of course, it helps that our topic was also another first, a guest for BOU!
Wool author Hugh Howey was kind enough (insane enough) to stay with us after our interview over at The Self Publishing Podcast, where we talked about Hugh’s breakout success as an indie writer. If you’re a Hugh fan, that’s probably the show you wanna listen to.
On Better Off Undead, however, all format is abandoned for an hour long chat on anything and everything.
We started off talking about Hugh’s zombie book, I, Zombie, and how disgusting it gets. Hugh wrote it in response to fans asking him to write a zombie book. He decided, I’ll write a zombie story, but it’s not gonna be the bullshit you’re used to seeing. It’s gonna be real.
And Hugh told us about one of the darker scenes in the book.
We also talked about the origins of Johnny’s forthcoming Fat Vampire book, about a vampire book Hugh is writing, our favorite horror movies, and…
whether or not The Dark Knight Rises sucks.
Johnny said it was the best movie ever, while Hugh said it was worse than Birdemic!
Sean and I (Dave) have yet to see it, so we all promised to get together for a roundtable debate once we’ve all seen it.
Hugh also played a couple rounds of our favorite game, Hypotheticals, and asked us one of his own.
As was usual custom, the show ended in almost awkward silence following some bad jokes.
Join us next week for more on-topic horror discussion!
