AISFP 133 – Justin Gustainis

THE TOME OF THE UNDERGATES has been recovered, and the gates of hell remain closed. Lenk and his five companions set sail to bring the accursed relic away from the demonic reach of Ulbecetonth, the Kraken Queen. But after weeks at sea, tensions amidst the adventurers are rising. Their troubles are only beginning when their ship crashes upon an island made of the bones left behind from a war long dead.

BLACK HALO is the second novel from the breakout fantasy sensation, Sam Sykes. Don’t miss this title from the author praised by John Scalzi, who said, “I do not wish Sam Sykes dead.” Oh, and when you buy your copy of BLACK HALO, please contact Sam on his website and tell him Adventures in Scifi Publishing sent you!

Show Notes

Justin Gustainis is a man who owes over $4,000 in library fees, but that’s not his only claim to fame! He is the author of the recently released HARD SPELL and SYMPATHY FOR THE DEVIL, and he joins us to discuss the circumstances around his first novel, THE HADES PROJECT, what inspired him as a child, a demonically possessed President of the United States (not ours. Listen to the interview.), style and pacing, dialogue, the Odyssey Workshop, his novel’s connection to Dracula, that his books are not paranormal romance, editing anthologies, meth-addicted goblins and an author who shall not be named. Also check out Stark For America.
