It’s not only vampires that drink blood. That’s what we find out on this week’s episode.
Our guest is Alexis Henderson – author of The Year of the Witching and now, her sophomore novel, House of Hunger. It’s a luscious, lurid tale of dark fantasy, blood and sex. Y’know … all the good stuff.
Oh, and it’s one of my favourite books of the year.
Alexis and I discuss the collision of horror and fantasy, the erotics and politics of blood, and the double standards when it comes to female perversion. We also talk a little about a certain Bloody Countess, who plays a big part in the background of House of Hunger.
House of Hunger is released September 27th by Ace Books
Other books mentioned in this episode include:
- A Dowry of Blood (2022), by S.T. Gibson
- The Year of the Witching (2021), by Alexis Henderson
