Podcasts – An Update of My Recorded Work

If you’re not absolutely sick of hearing my voice, here’s some stuff to consider—podcasts! With so much going on these days, I thought I’d post up some of my podcasts that I’ve done over the last couple of years. Two places that you should for sure keep on your lists, and subscribe to if possible (iTunes, etc.) are the Velvet Podcast series and the Booked Podcasts,who are currently running a series on the Warmed and Bound authors. Lots of great information and entertainment at both of these sites, so be sure to bookmark, get your RSS Feed on, whatever.

1. Episode 16: Great Writers Edit. Bad Writers Discuss Editing on a Podcast.

I join authors Caleb J. Ross (Stranger Will), Gordon Highland (Major Inversions) and Gavin Pate (The Way to Get Here). Nobody enjoys editing, but we all go at it differently.
Don’t mind the tornadoes in the background. I was hiding in the basement for a bit, if you notice me dropping off the recording for awhile.

2. Richard Thomas Booked Podcast Inverview

I join Livius Nedin and Robb Ols0n over at Booked Podcast to talk about Warmed and Bound, and a lot of other stuff: my novel Transubstantiate,
The Cult, Speedloader and my reviewing at The Nervous Breakdown. Great time.

BOOKED PODCAST SESSION 023

3. Episode 008: Don’t Pull My Hair Unless You Mean It

I join writers Nik Korpon (Stay God), Pela Via (Warmed and Bound) and Nic Young to grind out the topic of sex and violence in fiction
and their complex relationship to sadistic bedfellows, love and shock.

4. AWP Live Reading at Leela’s (Denver, Colorado)

Live reading from my novel Transubstantiate.

5. BOOKS AND BOOZE

Questions and answers. You know the drill.

My review of Cape Cod Noir (Akashic Books) is now live at The Cult

I know, the first thought out of your head must be, Cape Cod? What the hell does Cape Cod have to do with noir? Well, quite a lot it turns out. When you have an elite upper class that is butting up against a beaten down working class, long time residents dealing with obnoxious tourists with a sense of entitlement, things are going to boil over. This collection, Cape Cod Noir from Akashic Books is edited by David L. Ulin who does an excellent job of wrangling a strong mix of authors, including one of my favorite authors going, Paul Tremblay. They’ve put out some 40+ versions on noir such as Chicago Noir, Baltimore Noir, New York Noir, etc. and each book brings you local authors or writers with a unique perspective on a city and its people. Read my full review up at The Cult.

My review of Forecast by Shya Scanlon is now live at The Cult

My review of Forecast by Shya Scanlon is now up  at The Cult. Vonnegut meets PKD, it’s a fantastic book. I don’t want to repeat everything I said in the review, but following this story from its original publication across dozens of websites as Forecast 42, to its publication by Flatmancrooked (which sadly is closing up shop) to the new release as an eBook, this novel has quite a history. It carries the political and philosophical angst of Vonnegut with the strange, near future visions of Philip K. Dick. This was a wild ride, one that I really enjoyed.

Slut Lullabies by Gina Frangello review is now live at The Cult

My review of Slut Lullabies by Gina Frangello is now live at The Cult. A wonderful collection of short stories, these tales are funny, sexy, and dark, pulling you in and knocking you down. Head on over for the full review.

“Van tells me one of his students has written a story about a girl with a tracheotomy, whose English teacher breaks into her bedroom at night and makes love to the hole in her neck.”

My interview is up at The Cult

Inspired me with Fight Club

My in depth interview about Transubstantiate, my work, and life as a struggling author (by talented writer Brandon Tietz) is now live at The Cult

So many people at The Cult have been supportive of my work – from the intensives with Craig Clevenger, Monica Drake and Max Barry to the people that run the show (Mirka, Mark, Dennis and Kirk) to the entire workshop and all of the people that make me laugh and distract me with pictures, videos, books and randomness.

Thanks Cult. And thanks Chuck Palahniuk for inspiring me back when Fight Club came out.

Peace,
Richard
