From the Archives: Rick Hautala interview with “Francy & Friends,” January 2013

On January 20, 2013, Rick Hautala was a guest on the BlogTalkRadio show “Francy & Friends,” hosted by Francy Weatherman. It was recorded just two months before Rick’s untimely death in March 2013.

Sometime in the intervening years, the episode went AWOL from the BlogTalkRadio site. The page is still there, but the audio is not.

Fortunately, I saved the file, and it’s now hosted here for your enjoyment.

Here’s the description of the episode:

Known for the past two decades as “that other horror writer from Maine,” Rick Hautala has more than thirty published books to his credit, including the million copy, international best-seller Nightstone, as well as Twilight TimeLittle BrothersCold WhisperImpulse, and The Wildman. He has also published four novels using the pseudonym A. J. Matthews. His more than sixty short stories have appeared in national and international anthologies and magazines. His short story collection Bedbugs was selected as one of the best horror books of the year in 2003, and in 2012 he accepted a Stoker Lifetime Achievement Award from the Horror Writers Association.  An inspiration to a multitude of writers and legions of fans, we are proud to have this literary horror icon as our guest! Co-hosted by Bay Area horror host Joe Flynn and featuring all your favorite Francy friends including our own Nicholas Grabowsky and actor John Link!

Rick’s segment begins at 00:23:54.
