Horror Pod Class


Hey class!  Come meet Mike and Tyler, two high school teachers who absolutely love to talk and write about the horror genre!  We also own and write for a website named Signal Horizon, where you can get the latest news, reviews, and analysis of works from the horror and dark science fiction genres!

Apr 24, 2018

Today on the Horror Pod Class we are speaking with one of our favorite brand new authors, Robert Ashcroft.  Robert's new novel, The Megarothke, is a science fiction horror journey into a very gripping post-apocalyptic world.  We have a pretty wide ranging discussion, including Robert's time in the US Army, his influences for The Megarothke, the sub-genre of military science fiction, and just how long it really takes to get a novel to the level of polish that The Megarothke has.

We talk a little bit about military science fiction and what it gets right and what it gets wrong.  If you want to hear more about the sub-genre check out another podcast, Imaginary Worlds episode 79: On the Front Lines of Fantasy.
