TIH 071: Jasper Bark on Beyond Lovecraft, Crowdfunding and Graphic Novels

Jasper Bark TIH Podcast Episode 071

In this podcast Jasper Bark talks about Beyond Lovecraft, Crowdfunding and Graphic Novels. 

About Jasper Bark

Jasper Bark finds writing author biographies and talking about himself in the third person faintly embarrassing. Telling you that he’s an award-winning author of four cult novels including the highly acclaimed Way of the Barefoot Zombie, just sounds like boasting. Then he has to mention that he’s written twelve children’s books and hundreds of comics and graphic novels and he wants to just curl up. He cringes when he has to reveal that his work has been translated into nine different languages and is used in schools throughout the UK to help improve literacy, or that he was awarded the This Is Horror Award for his last anthology Dead Air. Maybe he’s too British, or maybe he just needs a good enema, but he’s glad this bio is now over.
