Writer & Adolescent Muse Interview Is Live; Mystery Biographee Revealed
What drew me to writing? What (if any) are recurring themes in my work? How do I get in my characters’ minds? All good questions — and, of course, a chance to say something about my new book, TOMBS: A CHRONICLE OF LATTER-DAY TIMES OF EARTH. These are a part of my latest interview, by Carrie Ann Golden, which is now live on her A WRITER & HER ADOLESCENT MUSE blog (cf. November 10). What was the inspiration behind TOMBS?

Thus the holiday weekend has ended, and a mystery has been solved as well. One may recall November 4, in a post about Elder Signs Press’s just published anthology DARK HORIZONS, the mystery about the not-about-me biography under my name in the “About the Authors” section at the end of the book. Sunday the secret was exposed, the man behind the biography is actually James C. Simpson (thus one “James” stands in for another, get it?) who has a story, “Branded for Hell,” in Elder Signs’s other anthology scheduled for this month, STREET MAGICK (September 18, January 22, et al.). “Branded in Hell” appears in the contents, in fact, just after my own story, “Bottles,” to be in there too. So the question now is if our bios will be reversed, or remain where they should be, or if a third or a fourth James will be found to substitute for one or the other.
The January 22 post also gives the full contents for STREET MAGICK for those who wish an early sneak peek, while those who check out my November 4 post can scroll down to “Comments” to see James Simpson’s mystery solution just as he sent it.
