  • Episode 76: Lee Maynard Remembered

    Episode 76: Lee Maynard Remembered

    26/07/2017 Duración: 01h35min

    The writer Lee Maynard passed away on June 16, 2017, in New Mexico. He was an infamous son of the Appalachian literary scene due to his less than flattering depiction of growing up in West Virginia in his novel Crum--infamously banned from sale at Tamarack. What negative publicity it received, however, drew more attention to the book, which is, at its heart, a love letter to the state. For the past 15 years, Lee has been a regular presenter at the WV Writers Summer Conference, often accompanied by his friend and collaborator Pops Walker. In this episode we talk to Pops himself about Lee and his work. Also included are Lee's previous podcast appearances, including a recording of one of Lee's readings with Pops Walker, a resonant interview he did with Cat Pleska in 2009, and other recorded material.

    WV Writers Podcast: Bonus 14 - A Consternation of Monsters episode

    18/08/2015 Duración: 19min

    The Seward Whale Strike Tragedy, they called it.  Twenty-five people dead. The worst accident in Alaska’s tourism history since Will Rogers’ plane went down in ‘35.   Only one man left alive knows the truth of what really happened -- the man everyone agrees caused the tragedy to start with. And if there's one thing he's sure of, the thing they hit that day was no whale. Presented here is his testimony, as transcribed for an interview with Paranorm Violations Magazine. This podcast adapts the short story "The Ones that Aren't Crows" found in the collection A Consternation of Monsters.

  • Episode 75: interview with author Ed Davis

    Episode 75: interview with author Ed Davis

    18/08/2015 Duración: 34min

    Ed Davis is the WV-native author of the novels I Was So Much Older Then and The Measure of Everything. His third novel, The Psalms of Israel Jones was recently published by WV University Press. It tells the story of a legendary hard-living, hard-lovin', hard-drinkin', and hard-druggin' rockstar who, in his later years, develops something of a cult following. Literally. His son Thom, a conservative minister with some possible moral issues of his own, is called on to the tour by a mysterious phone call and finds himself once again thrust into his estranged father's chaotic world of tour busses, dive-bar shows, and... snake-handlers? In this episode, host Eric Fritzius sits down with Davis for an interview about the novel, as recorded during the Lewisburg Literary Festival on August 8, 2015.
