Dec. 15, 2016: Newton Frolich/L.M. Browning/Neon Alley/Wicked Witches/Tom Sniegoski

This week we welcome back co-host Matt Zappa! He's been on the go non-stop in the last few months and has some great stories to share.

Tonight we start the show with a little history lesson....except this is one you'll probably never hear in school. Author Newton Frolich returns to talk about his new book, "1492," a look at the history behind the voyage of Christopher Columbus and the world-changing events surrounding it. This story has a great mix for you-bloody action, political intrigue, and an in-depth look at one of the milestones of our nation.

Author L.M. Browning joins us to talk about her new book, "The Castoff Children." It's set in the year 1850, the opening days of the Industrial Revolution. Twelve kids, alone save for each other, come together to find a way to survive, and maybe, learn that they aren't as alone as they thought.

The band Neon Alley is on to talk about their new, self-titled album! They've also got a kickass music video that really sets the bar for others looking to create one. These guys have a great musical history, that goes way beyond this current musical project.

Because we can't get enough of him, Scott Goudsward is back this week, along with David Price and Dan Keohane, for their new book, "Wicked Witches: An Anthology of the New England Horror Writers." The book is a collection of some amazing writers, including Izzy Lee, John M. McIlveen, Rob Smales, James A. Moore, and many, many more!

BONUS: Author Tom Sniegoski talks to Max at the Merrimack Halloween Book Festival. Tom's done some amazing work, between his time in comics and his novels.
