It’s that time of year again, folks: when I write you a bloody, epic madcap of a book and flood your local bookery blogs with rants, interviews, and articles about all things strange.
As ever, I’ll be updating this post with links each week as they go live so you can catch up on what you may have missed. There are quite a few podcast appearances not listed here, as they often go up as soon as they are edited, and sometimes there are delays, so circle back after they air – I’ll update the post with links.
Stay frosty, folks.
