Joe McKinney knows zombies. His Dead World series (including “Flesh Eaters” which won the Bram Stoker Award for Best Novel of 2011) has established Joe as one of the kings of Undead Fiction. But that’s not the end of his literary exploits… he’s written post-apocalyptic scifi, crime thrillers (he IS a police officer in San Antonio after all), and edited numerous works as well. Joe’s the whole package and Brion and I have a blast spending 20-ish minutes discussing the nature of horror literature, the keys to writing a chilling tale, zombie pride, and so much more. (and we rocked some serious brainstorming during Joe’s Workshop Episode too!)
