This really cool item popped up on the the web last week and I haven’t seen it get a lot of attention, so welcome to our first installment of “In Case You Missed It,” where we spotlight something book-/author-related that has either fallen under the radar or just hasn’t gotten the attention we think it deserves.
So, I know you’re wondering, what exactly is this “Jack Ketchum: Mixtape N° 434” we speak of? Well, it’s a compilation on Soundcloud (think: mixtape for the digital age) created by The Voice of Cassandra, featuring a host of tracks selected by author Jack Ketchum (The Girl Next Door, Off Season). The playlist features tunes from the Rolling Stones, Leonard Cohen, The Beatles, Billie Holiday and more.
Music is a muse. Sometimes even a macabre one.
