The second installment of my interview with Jack Ketchum is now live at Dark Scribe Magazine. This portion deals more with the literary side of things. How he got into writing novels in the first place and his journey in the world of publishing where OFFSPRING and its predecessor, OFF SEASON, are concerned.

Enjoy!

I recently had the pleasure of visting the set of Jack Ketchum‘s OFFSPRING (the film adaptation of the novel), a Moderncine production. In addition to observing portions of the actual film shoot, I also had a chance to sit down with Ketchum and get his thoughts on the film making process as well as discuss the history of the novel and its predecessor, OFF SEASON and the journey from print to the big screen.

Part I is live at Dark Scribe Magazine now.

Part II will run next week.

Enjoy!

If you’re looking for a great read to wind down the summer with, I highly recommend JACK HARINGA MUST DIE! Edited by Nicholas Kaufmann. My official review at Dark Scribe has been posted, you can read it here.

What started on March 7, 2008 as “Kill Jack Haringa on Your Blog Day,” has come to its fruition with this anthology of collected blog entries and a few additional stories from authors who missed out on their first chance to send Haringa to an early grave. Sale proceeds will be donated to support the newly created Shirley Jackson Awards.

The anthology features thrills, kills and chills from authors such as Jack Ketchum, Christopher Golden, James A. Moore, Lee Thomas, Nick Mamatas and many others. At the bargain price of $10 (the same price as Nick Kaufmann’s Blue Shirt of Awesomeness, I might add) how can one go wrong?

Copies can be purchased here. Check it out and support a good cause.
