Jon Padgett's The Secret of Ventriloquism, named the Best Horror Fiction Book of 2016 by Rue Morgue Magazine, heralds the arrival of a significant new literary talent. With themes reminiscent of Shirley Jackson, Thomas Ligotti, and Bruno Schulz, but with a strikingly unique vision, Padgett's work explores the mystery of human suffering, the agony of personal existence, and the ghastly means by which someone might achieve salvation from both. 

Halloweekly sits down with this incredibly talented author to find out where his ideas come from, what scares him, and how he feels about the state of the horror genre circa 2017.
