97 – A Monstrous Roundtable, with Ellen Datlow, Nathan Ballingrud, Chikodili Emelumadu & Joe R. Lansdale
This week on Talking Scared it’s monsters all day, every day. To celebrate the release of Screams From the Dark: 29 Tales of Monsters and the Monstrous, we gather around the campfire with editor Ellen Datlow and three of her contributors – no less than Nathan Ballingrud, Chikodili Emelumadu and the great Joe R. Lansdale.As a result, this is not your average Talking Scared episode. There is interruption, overlap, argument much good humour. Amidst the chaos we still manage a fascinating conversation about the creatures that lurk in the wilds and those who walk amongst us. We talk about what makes a monster, why we love them, and where they fit in our modern hyperconnected world.(and they have the audacity to tell me that Bigfoot isn’t real!)Enjoy!Screams From the Dark: 29 Tales of Monsters and the Monstrous was published on June 7th by Tor NightfireOther books discussed in this episode include:The Wilds (2014), by Julia ElliotOrmeshadow (2019), by Priya SharmaSundial (2022), by Catriona WardRoad of Bones (2022), by Christopher GoldenAnd Then I Woke Up (2022), by Malcolm Devlin (episode 87)The Last Storm (2022), by Tim LebbonEden (2020), by Tim LebbonAnybody Home (2022), by Michael SiedlingerCunning Women: A Feminist Tale of Forbidden Love After the Witch Trials (2021), by Elizabeth LeeHemingway's Widow: The Life and Legacy of Mary Welsh Hemingway (2022), by Timothy ChristianThe Writer’s Crusade: Kurt Vonnegut and the Many Lives of Slaughterhouse-Five (2021), by Tom RostenAfrican Monsters: Volume 2 (2015), edited by Margret Hellgadotir and Jo Thomas.
