TIH 087 Vincenzo Bilof on the Effect of Satire, the Horror Writers Association and The Violators

In this podcast Vincenzo Bilof talks about the effect of satire, George R. R. Martin, The Violators, the HWA and much more.

About Vincenzo Bilof

From Detroit, Michigan, Vincenzo Bilof has been called ‘The Metallica of Poetry’ and ‘The Shakespeare of Gore’. With a body of work that includes gritty, apocalyptic horror (The Zombie Ascension Series), surrealist prose (The Horror Show), and visceral genre satire (Vampire Strippers from Saturn), Bilof’s fiction remains as divisive and controversial as it is original. He likes to think Ezra Pound, T.S. Eliot, and Charles Baudelaire would be proud of his work. More likely, Ed Wood would have been his biggest fan.
