Episode 26

Ben Fortier

Benjamin Fortier's writing is not for everyone. It can be shocking, disturbing, wildly imaginative, jarring. There is no doubt it is well done, though. But much like understanding the history of a wine gives you an appreciation for it, understanding Ben's background - from his time in Iraq to his love of metal - gives you the context you need to enjoy his work. I can't wait to hear him read some of his selections at the Savage Wonder Festival - and after listening to his story, I think you'll look forward to it as well.
