New Tears of Isis Interview Up on The Writers’ Lens

Today the second of my The Tears of Isis Interview Trifecta has been posted, the first of them being on LONG AND SHORT REVIEWS on May 7 and Number 3 scheduled for July 29 on the British blog DUSTY PAGES (cf. May 17, April 25, et al.).  This is the one by Teresa  Schnellmann on  THE WRITERS’ LENS which, as she has descried it elsewhere, has me “talking about how truth resonates, even in fantasy & horror.”  There’s more than just that, of course.  Her leading question has to do with what “brings your writing into focus — the characters, the stories, the love of words?” while others cover such things as inspiration, what makes a book or characters unique, and what readers might especially find of interest in THE TEARS OF ISIS.  I will say, in fact, that while I tend to be a relatively long-winded interviewee in the best of cases, the questions Teresa asked were ones I thought particularly inviting for answering in some depth.

So give Teresa’s interview a try — and maybe even leave a comment!  The title she gives it is “Fantasy/horror author James Dorr:  ‘True’ stories resonate with readers,” and it can be read by pressing here.


  1. Exceptionally good interview, Jim!
    I especially liked this:
    When asked what would be the most significant thing you wanted to evoke in your writing, you answered: “That it made someone think. That it made them wonder, and then to reflect beyond the page.”
    Very informative interview, as well.
