“Good, in-depth conversation with Leza about me, my books, and some of our shared weirdness in a damp Necon hotel room. Mmmm, moist.”
I recorded three episodes all in the same day while at my first Necon (North Eastern Writer’s Conference). I was really excited to meet Brett and his wife and partner in publishing crime, Sandra Kasturi, because they run a badass and boundary pushing dark horror/sci-fi, & fantasy press together and that always inspires me, seeing writers, editors, and publishers doing amazing work that is off the beaten path and filling those market gaps that more mainstream presses are scared to tackle. Brett & Sandra are doing the dark god’s good work & it was an honor to pick Brett’s brain for a good hour. Enjoy!

Brett Savory recently stepped down as the Co-Publisher of the World Fantasy and British Fantasy Award-winning ChiZine Publications so he could dedicate more time to writing. His title is now Editor/eBook Czar/Webmaster, so he apparently thinks he can hang on in the company simply by increasing the titles he holds. He’s had over 50 short stories published—some of those collected in No Further Messages—as well as two novels, In and Down and The Distance Travelled, with a third just released by Angry Robot called A Perfect Machine. He’s halfway through his fourth novel, Lake of Spaces, Wood of Nothing, is the drummer for the metal band Ol’ Time Moonshine—who just released their first full-length album, The Apocalypse Trilogies: Space Wolf and Other Dark Tales on Salt of the Earth Records—and lives in Peterborough, ON, Canada with his wife, writer/editor/publisher Sandra Kasturi.
