Bloodlines Interview Series #2: Alex Wolfgang

by P.L. McMillan

Welcome back, dearest reader! This is the second interview in my special series focussing on the upcoming collection of familial horror, Bloodlines, coming out January 11th, 2022. This series will include an interview with each of the four authors involved, culminating in my overall review of Bloodlines itself.

If you missed it, be sure to check out my interview yesterday with Carson Winter, author of “I Am Not to be Replaced” in Bloodlines.

These interviews dive into each author’s experience with creating this collection, their inspirations, aspirations, and challenges that they encounter as writers. If you’re a writer or just interested in the process, then these interviews are a must-watch!


If you’ve ever dreaded a family dinner, felt terror at the blood pumping in your veins; if you’ve ever thought maybe the people you call kin just aren’t quite right—Bloodlines will hold you in its thrall with its literary daring, blood-soaked wit, and taste for carnage. From quiet horror to caterwauling bloodshed, this quadruple feature is fun for the whole family. (Amazon)

Bloodlines is currently available for pre-order. 

Alex Wolfgang

Today, we are interviewing Alex Wolfgang, author of “The Heads of Leviathan” in Bloodlines. Wolfgang’s fiction has appeared in Howls from Hell and his debut collection, Splinter and Other Stories, was released in 2020.

My first exposures to horror were books like Clive Barker’s The Thief of Always, the Goosebumps series, and Scary Stories to Tell in the Dark, but it wasn’t until adulthood that I became truly obsessed. In 2016, I discovered Thomas Ligotti and Laird Barron and have been digging into the rabbit hole ever since. (from Wolfgang’s bio on his website)

You can find his website here, or follow him on Twitter and Instagram.

Following the death of his mother, the eldest of five siblings must uncover the true nature of his family’s strange, isolated existence while an apocalyptic event looms. (Amazon description of “The Heads of Leviathan”)

Let’s check out what he had to say about Bloodlines and writing in general:

And don’t forget to come back tomorrow for the next interview!
