The Haunting of Your Bedside Table

In this interview, Darby asks the hard questions – we talk about common ghost story themes, racism, and the library copies of my book going missing! Our interview follows Casey’s Halloween reads, starting around the 17:45 mark.

Meet Me in the Stacks is Vancouver Island Regional Library’s podcast. Each episode is unique, but almost always has a book recommendation segment. I’ve added Casey’s Halloween recommendations to my reading list for next year.

Because it’s a United Kingdom podcast, I found Rick’s choice of which stories to focus on interesting. We talked about First Nations spirituality, Vancouver Island’s sense of place, made comparisons to European folklore, and much more.
