In this podcast J.R. Park talks about five years of the Sinister Horror Company, conventions, health issues, and much more.
Note: this was recorded before the COVID-19 so unfortunately many of the conventions referenced were cancelled.
About J.R. Park
J R Park is a co-founder of the Sinister Horror Company. He is the author of Terror Byte, Punch, Upon Waking, The Exchange, Postal, Mad Dog, Death Dreams In A Whorehouse, and Death Dreams At Christmas. His inspiration is drawn from the crazy worlds of exploitation cinema and pulp literature, but with a twist. His writing often plays with form and narrative as he slowly wears down the boundaries of what pulp horror can be.
