The Occult Detective’s #LastWrites with… Josh Reynolds
Welcome to the fourth installment of LAST WRITES.
The premise is simple. My guests face their final rest, but before Death claims them they are granted a few earthly pleasures, the memories of which will travel with them into the great unknown.
Today’s guest is Josh Reynolds, a writer, occasional editor and semi-professional monster movie enthusiast. He has been a professional author since 2007, and has had over twenty novels published in that time, as well as a wealth of shorter fiction pieces, including short stories, novellas and the occasional audio script. An up-to-date list of his published work, including licensed fiction for Games Workshop’s Warhammer Fantasy and Warhammer 40,000 lines, can be found on this site.
He grew up in South Carolina, a place where hoodoo is still regularly practiced. Where vampire-trees are marked with witch-sign and where soul-bottles are hung from branches. Where people paint their houses blue to keep out hungry ghosts and never burn wood from a tree where someone’s been hanged.
In retrospect, his chosen vocation is unsurprising.
Bacon, eggs and grits. Bacon needs to be juuuust shy of burnt. Runny eggs. Lots of butter on the grits.
A Night in the Lonesome October, by Roger Zelazny. It’s the only book I re-read every year, no matter what..
The Blues Brothers. Self-explanatory, right?
“Green Onions”, by Booker T and the M.G.’s. No particular reason. It just relaxes me..
FIRST PERSON YOU’D LIKE TO MEET ON THE OTHER SIDE
My dogs. All of them. If you don’t understand, I ain’t got the patience to explain it to you.
