“It’s been a part of my life for so long I actually still wake up in the middle of the night and think ‘Oh god I need to finish it’.” Happy Halloween everyone! It’s a special horror themed edition of the podcast this month as I talk to novelist and non-fiction writer Verity Holloway. Verity is the author of the novel Pseudotooth and the book The Mighty Healer. In the episode we talk about how ships get their names, the cliches of portal fantasy, and how witches can’t reverse. Verity also reads a story based on a prompt set by Rocketship Forest, which is guaranteed to terrify you.
