A Book and a Chat with Vincent Hobbes

Vincent Hobbes is my guest on today’s “A Book and a Chat”. He has been actively writing since he was 15 years old. A fan “The Twilight Zone” his roots lay in horror, though now he has branched out into other genres.

In 2007, he published his first book “The Contrived Senator” the first book in a fantasy series, which was followed the following year by book two of the series “Exiles”,

Vincent has always been into writing short stories and in 2010 he teamed up with 11 incredible authors, and created The Endlands.

This horror anthology, like chicken soup for the sole for horror readers, “The Endlands”, an ode to the kooky and bizarre,was released at the start of this year.

As Vincent shared with us on the radio show, the book was the result of many hundreds of short stories he received, ranging from multi published authors to a person who had one story that had to be told.

The finished book includes seventeen different stories ranging across various styles of horror, I'm sure it would make a great TV series, perhaps a little like Twilight Zone for horror fans.

As Midwest Book Review put it…

There is little more primordially frightening to us than the unknown. “The Endlands” is a collection of short stories aimed to frighten and ponder what we all fear the most, what’s behind that corner, what is there to antagonize us and what we simply cannot explain. With plenty to ponder and plenty to make it quite hard to put down, “The Endlands” is an excellent read and very highly recommended.

With a second book already being prepared, to follow “The Endlands", Vincent is currently finishing two solo authored books; one is a horror novel set in the wild west, the other is a futuristic novel—dystopian.
