Episode 48: Interview with Hailey Piper author of The Worm and His Kings

Postcards from a Dying World

For episode 48 I have a conversation with a young and upcoming voice in the rising Queer horror movement. Of course, queer horror is nothing new  Clive Barker and Poppy Z. Brite were out voices as far back as the 80s  and 90s but exciting new things are happening in this space and Hailey has become a leader in the movement based on the strength of Her novella  The Worm and His Kings which is an early favorite for a favorite read of the year already.    Hailey Piper writes horror and dark fantasy and is a member of the  Horror Writers Association.  Her other titles include Unfortunate  Elements of My Anatomy, The Possession of Natalie Glasgow, and Benny  Rose, the Cannibal King. Her short fiction appears in such places as  Year’s Best Hardcore Horror, The Arcanist, Flash Fiction Online, Daily  Science Fiction, Tales to Terrify, Blood Bath Literary Zine, and lots of other spaces.   In this conversation, we talk about Hailey’s early and modern influences, her early books, and her new collection. Then we dive into a  spoiler-free and spoiler-tastic look at  The Worm and His Kings. Don’t worry there is a warning but you can listen to most of the interview without concern of spoilers.    If you want to support the podcast, please like and subscribe.
