Pete is a novelist. He has sung opera in German, been detained in Calabar, Nigeria, busked near Islamabad, Pakistan and felled trees in Canada. Some of this is untrue. His young adult novels – Silent Striker, Being Me and Zombie XI – have been published recently by HopeRoad. His short story, ‘Getting Home (The Proofreader’s Sigh)’ can be found in the 2015 Peepal Tree short story collection, Closure. Among his other publications are the romantic comedy Diary of a Househusband and the science fiction novel Black Star Rising (both X Press). Until recently, he ran a carnival band, The Moko Jumbies. You can follow him on Twitter @peterkalu.
I’ll be talking to Pete about all his novels, and – as always – he’ll be sharing his selections for Apocalypse Books in the second hour of the show.
