Ben Percy will be speaking at Prairie Lights Bookstore in Iowa City on Friday November 8 about his new collection of short stories "Suicide Woods."

"Suicide Woods" is author Benjamin Percy's latest collection of short stories. The book delivers a combination of horror, crime and weird happenings in the woods. This book is a dark, inventive collection full of eerie and provocative tales.

On this edition of Talk of Iowa, host Charity Nebbe asks where Percy gets his inspiration for writing these horror stories and about his most recent work in the comic, movie and podcast industries.

Percy recently wrote Marvel's first scripted podcast, Wolverine: The Long Night (season 1) and Wolverine: The Lost Trail (season 2) and his forthcoming trilogy The Comet Cycle is currently in development as a film franchise by Anthony and Joe Russo.    

This program originally aired on Nov. 7, 2019.
