A Conversation with Bracken MacLeod | Shock Totem

Today is the last day of Books of the Dead Press’ big sale and therefore the last day to get Mountain Home for less than a buck. Coincidentally, today is also the day you can lose all remaining respect for me by reading my impertinent and distasteful answers to questions posed by the decent folk over at Shock Totem Publications.

 

A Conversation with Bracken MacLeod

Posted on October 18, 2013 by K. Allen Wood

I first met Bracken MacLeod at Necon in 2011. After a day of just noticing this semi-scary tattooed bald man with a ferocious goatee, he endeared himself to me with his untethered audacity…making fun at the newly dead Amy Winehouse within minutes of the announcement she had passed. I saw hearts.

So before we delve into the shortish interview he was gracious enough to allow me to conduct, let me tell you what I have learned of the man in the years since Necon. His name is Bracken…that’s exactly like the terrifying sea monster loosed by the Gods in Clash of the Titans, but with a B. B for Badass! He is a very smart and very humble man, a father, husband and former lawyer. He also writes gripping fiction, not always horror but quite often visceral and dark. I’d been lucky enough to read several shorts before Mountain Home arrived at Shiney Acres and I could already count myself a fan. Mountain Home cemented it.

With no further dithering, let’s talk with Mr. MacLeod…
