The 174th episode of the Reading & Writing podcast features an interview with Samuel Gailey, author of DEEP WINTER.

“Set in rural Pennsylvania, Samuel W. Gailey’s Deep Winter is a beautiful and brutal debut. Put Steinbeck’s Of Mice and Men in a blender with Scott Smith’s classic crime novel A Simple Plan, then watch as Gailey hits the switch and everything in this world spins dangerously out of hand. A wonderful fast-paced read.” -Urban Waite, author of The Terror of Living and The Carrion Birds

“Deep Winter is a fast-paced thriller tense enough to give you paper cuts from turning the pages so quickly.” -Joe R. Lansdale, author of The Thicket

Weston Ochse is the new voice of action science fiction. (Jonathan Maberry, New York Times bestselling author of CODE ZERO and FALL OF NIGHT)
