Joseph D’Lacey is the author of the novel MEAT, published by Bloody Books, in which he draws on the realities of factory farming and slaughter to create a hellish dystopia. The research turned him vegetarian, making the book a cautionary statement on the growing human appetite for flesh.
Joseph has been writing horror for the last ten years but strays into other genres at the drop of a scalpel. Eco-horror is the worm currently eating his brain. His forthcoming novel ‘The Garbage Man’ deals with the dangers of landfill waste and the many other things people would prefer to keep buried…
Wonder Woman, Star Trek, Six Million Dollar Man & Bionic Woman, and The Omen - for a poor kid growing up in Boston (where there wasn't much to do except watch TV or go outside and find trouble), they were doorways into the worlds of science fiction, fantasy, horror, and comics. And they remain the cornerstones of Paul K. Bisson's inner Fanboy.

Way back in 2008, John thought it would be a good idea to get together with his friends on a more regular basis and talk about those things they loved most. He likened it to their experience twenty years earlier on the public access show, The Chronic Rift. It only seemed natural to record the experience and make it a podcast. This is the first episode from September 2008 and it basically sets up what the gang hoped to accomplish with the podcast. This episode features both a Roundtable and an In Review segment and was originally only supposed to be released once a month. The size proved too much and it was agreed that the two portions would become episodes of their own. From there, the Spotlight episodes were then created.
