"It's the show other shows want to be, and the show authors want to be on."

This trailblazing blog show makes quite the refreshing change from your average horror podcasts! There really is no other indie horror show like it!

Now Into our third year!!!

Sponsored by the new name in independent horror - HellBound Book Publishing LLC, The all-new Panic Room Radio show is a wonderfully entertaining, eclectic mix of chat, good humor and the very best guests from the world of independent horror, bizarro, erotica and dark erotica publishing.

Hosted by Ex-Pat Brit horror/bizarro author/blog radio personality/philanthropist James H Longmore and the Dark Poet Princess/consummate wine connoisseur Xtina Marie, the show breaks the mold in nighttime horror entertainment, offering lively, extremely funny chat and the very best from the indie horror worlds - we call it our 'Horrody (TM )Show'!

And it's not all horror, writing and writers! We have regular features that aim to both entertain and educate!

So, you can expect lively, conversation, guest readings and even a classic tune or three - the New Panic Room is an hour and a half of awesome, prime time entertainment!

We will also aim to surprise our wonderful, loyal listeners with the occasional guest co-host, so watch (listen to!) this space!!!

We defy you to find a radio show out there that can boast a more bizarre - yet infinitely engaging - pairing than James H. Longmore (successful horror & bizarro author, comedian and professional Yorkshireman - think Sean Bean plays James Bond and you're pretty much there!) Xtina Marie (sultry, bubbly voiced dark poet princess - author of the highly acclaimed Dark Musings)!

They are joined by the one and only Becky The Reviewer who each week reviews annd recommends the very best indie horror of the moment!

Between them, James, Xtina and Becky create a unique, intelligent and often whacky spark - so tune in for some unexpected tangents, wry observations and hilarious rants!
