J Patrick Allen joins the show to discuss his next Dead West novel, Dead West: Hallows of Decay. We discuss research, mythology, westerns, and 1870s cocktail culture. Mixology and mythology, as it were. As well as some of his other projects, including a slice-of-life novel about the con-life, and just how hard it is to find a good convention.


Dead West: Hallows of Decay comes out on July 11th, 2018.
