Noise : Nicholaus Patnaude : Bizzong! Podcast

This is Bizzong! And things are going to get bizarre and weird as usual Zongers!

This week’s guest is the author of GUITAR WOLF, Nicholaus Patanude and is part of the 2016 New Bizarro Author Series. I always enjoy interviewing the NBAS writers and it is a unique opportunity to get the persepective or writers who are just beginning their journey into the genre. Nicholaus has provided one of the most open behind the scenes looks at the process of pitching story ideas, fleshing them out and working on the final product for the book series.

Nicholaus also runs Psychodelic Horror Press, a publishing house he hopes he can utilize to create books that are not only a blend of high concept fiction and low brow punk driven pulp but also a book that transcends are mere vessel for words and becomes an object of beauty and artful appreciation.

So strap in Zongers ‘cuz we’re gonna get a bit real this week on Bizzong!
