Hello and welcome to the Dark Word. This is Season 1, Episode 1 and I’m your host Philip Fracassi.

The Dark Word is a podcast about writing, writers, and those who read those writers. The goal of this podcast is to focus on the profession of writing—the creative process, the business side of things, or simply offering advice on how to be a professional writer. We’ll be hearing from some of the best in the business.

This week features my interview with Laird Barron. True to our name, the Dark Word focuses on writers who tend to hang out in the shadowy side of the room. These are the names you think of when you hear horror, suspense, noir —the names who’ve chilled you and thrilled you.

So follow me down this dark hallway, because there’s someone I’m dying for you to meet.

Today’s guest is Laird Barron, an expat Alaskan, is the author of several books, including The Imago Sequence and Other Stories; Swift to Chase; and the Isaiah Coleridge trilogy: Blood Standard, Black Mountain, and Worse Angels. For more on Laird Barron, visit Book and Film Globe to read his BFG interview. Barron lives in the Rondout Valley of New York State, where he’s hard at work crafting stories of evil and woe.
