Michael Hodges has been unleashing monsters on horror readers ever since his debut novel, The Puller, was published in 2015. In the science fiction thriller, an invisible beast torments a man in Michigan’s Upper Peninsula. Since then, he’s written about creepy alien creatures that try to take over a Montana ecosystem (The Invasive) and the horrors of materialism when a shopping mall gets cut off from the known universe (Black Friday).

Recently, I got a chance to chat with Hodges about monster-making and his photography.
