Looks Unfamiliar is a podcast in which writer and occasional broadcaster Tim Worthington talks to a guest about some of the things that they remember that nobody else ever seems to.
Joining Tim this time is novelist Will Maclean, who’s finding himself haunted by recollections of the Zegazoid Chew Bar, The Song And The Story, Look And Read: The King’s Dragon, The Fourth Pan Book Of Horror Stories, The Weekend Book Of Ghosts And Horror and Photographs Of The Unknown. Along the way we’ll be formulating a low quality Richard Carpenter conspiracy theory, debating how ghosts answer the phone, finding out why the tie-in Xtro Bar was never marketed, and trying to figure out exactly what Wordy actually was other than being a floating pedantic bastard. Plus we may be getting a visit from the Grange Hill Walled-Up Ghost…
Will Maclean is a BAFTA-winning television scriptwriter and producer. You can get his novel The Apparition Phase here and his Audible Original comedy series High Strangeness here. You can follow Will on Twitter at @unreal_will.

If you’ve enjoyed this, you’ll enjoy Tim’s book Can’t Help Thinking About Me, a collection of columns and features with a personal twist. Can’t Help Thinking About Me is available in paperback here or from the Kindle Store here.
Alternately, if you’re just feeling generous, you can buy me a coffee here. I mean you could get a Zegazoid Chew Bar instead but you’d probably need a time machine for that.
There’s more about the less spooky but no less scary editions of Look And Read in The Sci-Fi That Time Forgot here.
Will has also appeared on Looks Unfamiliar talking about Once Upon A Time… Man, Galaxy High, In The Sofa, Powers Of Ten, The Snake and The Episode Of The Sooty Show Where Sweep Had Brain Surgery, which you can find here.
