Visiting the Black Light: An interview with Patrick Melton, Marcus Dunstan, and Stephen Romano

US cover for BLACK LIGHT

Recently, we posted a review of Mulholland Books’ phenomenal new release, Black Light, a supernatural/noir/horror novel by Patrick Melton, Marcus Dunstan, and Stephen Romano. In the review, I stated that I found myself rivited to the page, and about to go on the ride of my life. That quote stands true, still, after perusing the book for some of my favorite scenes. The re-readability of this book is high, folks, as it’s full of action, suspense, various forms of literary eye-candy, and heaps of insanity.

Now, for those of you who know me, you know I like to blabber on and on about random book facts, badass scenes, and even badder-assed characters. Well, this time around I got to do that with the creators of the Black Light and its main character Buck Carlsbad: Patrick Melton, Marcus Dunstan, and Stephen Romano.

To say that I was nervous is an understatement but, as you’ll soon find out by listening to the interview, these guys are all completely down to earth, nice, and approachable folks… which might make you wonder just that little bit more as to what’s really hiding in their brains. Are there plans for a second Black Light book? What’s on the horizon for these writers? Will Stephen Romano sing in this interview? Listen to find out.

Here’s a little more info about the authors:

Patrick Melton (Right) and Marcus Dunstan (Left)

Melton and Dunstan are the co-writers behind the 3rd through 6th Saw films, as well as Saw 3D, Feast 1 – 3, and The Collector. Black Light is their first novel, and an incredible example of how absolutely perfect these two are for the literary world. Their cinematic visions translate wonderfully, and leave the reader with no choice but to see exactly what the authors want them to.

Stephen Romano

Romano is the author and screen writer behind The first episode in the Masters of Horror – Incident On And Off A Mountain Road, 42nd Street Forever: Volume 5, Shock Festival, the upcoming Bubba Nosferatu: Curse of the She-Vampires, and the novels: Invasion Of The Mutanoids, The Riot Act, and a forthcoming book that is said to be a “white-knuckle suspense action piece that plays like ‘The Borne Identity meets Mission Impossible directed by Quentin Tarantino“. When that official announcement is made, we’ll be here to bring it to you.

So here we go, folks. Take a listen to our little chat, and go get yourself a copy of Black Light, which drops on October 5th from Mulholland Books (US and UK)
