Richard Chizmar joins the show to discuss his new book Becoming the Boogeyman a blending of true crime and horror fiction..
Richard is not only a New York Times, USA Today, Wall Street Journal, Washington Post, Amazon and Publishers weekly bestselling author, screenwriter and extremely prolific short story writer, he is also the founder of Cemetery Dance Magazine and the Cemetery Dance book imprint, and has won two World Fantasy awards, four International Horror Guild Awards, and the Horror Writers Association Board of Trustees award, and we are truly honored to have him with us.
Becoming the Boogeyman is the much anticipated sequel to his highly acclaimed book Chasing the Boogeyman which Stephen King called, “Genuinely chilling.”
Both of these booksare a blend of true-crime, horror fiction, and memoir with Richard writing himself into the story as the narrator, and I can tell you the second one is just as good if not better than the first, an action packed thrill ride of the first order.
Join us to hear Richard tell us what true crimes influenced his work, whether he believes in ghosts, and if Stephen King calls him a scaredy pants or not.
Becoming the Boogeyman will be released October 10th from Simon and Schuster.
