Kryptographik : Episode 18

Kryptographik is a trans-continental podcast featuring Brian (in the U.S.) and Damian (in Australia), providing news, reviews, and commentary regarding science-fiction, dark fantasy and horror, in and out of comics.

In our Halloween podcast, we turn tradition on it’s head and (along with some friends) bring the treats to you.

In this episode, We have an audio comment from Aaron, host of the Sci-Fi Dig Podcast, a review of Eric Red’s Containment from KomicsKast’s Jon Hook, and a review of Marvel Zombies from the Comic Timing / BK Bullets / Geeks Unite podcasting crew (along with our rebuttal).

We also discuss our Halloween traditions, our ongoing costume contest, what we call our listeners, changes to the show’s format, and our multimedia portal (with movie trailers and video interviews) at

We close out this episode interviewing author Robert Devereaux, as we discuss his new novel Deadolescence: A Tale of Love and Sacrifice, available only via email – for free! That’s right, starting on Halloween he’ll be e-mailing 2 chapters a week to anyone who signs up on his website at

(Even if you sign up after Halloween, each email will contain links to the previous chapters – so there’s no excuse not to sign up.)

We discuss the story behind the story (think Shirley Jackson’s The Lottery meets Prom Night), e-publishing vs. traditional publishing, and whether or not Roger Bacon wrote the works of William Shakespeare (no, we’re not kidding).
