No, this isn’t the one I mentioned June 16 as having received the questions for (though I’ve since sent the answers back); nor is it the one previewed on June 3, published in England on the 6th.  No, this is the interview mentioned May 8 for Grim and Grimmer Books’s DEADSTEAM anthology, conducted by Editor-Publisher Bryce Raffle, on such subjects as dreadpunk, historic fiction, Victorian funeral directors, and . . . well, you know.  If I’ve done it right, there’ll be mentions as well of THE TEARS OF ISIS and TOMBS: A CHRONICLE OF LATTER-DAY TIMES OF EARTH, the books I’m flogging for myself.  But the major point of this one is DEADSTEAM, the anthology due out later this fall in which my entry is “The Re-Possessed,” a saga of the funeral profession in 19th Century England (originally published in CEMETERY RIOTS by Elysium Press in 2016) and inspired by thoughts during a real-life memorial service.

This will be the fourth interview Editor Raffle has done of DEADSTEAM authors, previous ones having appeared on June 8, May 11, and February 25, and can be read by pressing here.  Or if you would like to read some of the others (presumably after mine, of course) the blog main page can be reached here.  Or, for mini-biographies of all DEADSTEAM authors, one can indulge by pressing here.

DEADSTEAM is an anthology of dreadpunk, gaslamp, and dark steampunk. These are tales of the ghoulish and the gothic, chilling stories of haunted streets, of vampires and demons stalking the city from fog-drenched alleyways lit only by gas lamps.

17 chilling stories of the monsters lurking around every corner, the ghosts haunting the darkest streets of Victorian London, and the dead things crawling out of their graves to consume the flesh of the living.

And there you have it.  As for my part in this, I have a reprint originally published in CEMETERY RIOTS (Elysium Press, 2016; cf. September 3 2016, et al.) about a Victorian funeral directer and an incident from his early days in the business.  All right and proper like.  But now something new:  DEADSTEAM editor Bryce Raffle is featuring a series of interviews of some of the authors, of which mine has just been scheduled to appear on June 29.

So it’s something to look forward to for the summer, with the first of the interviews already posted on DEADSTEAM’s blog site for which one may press here.  Or for a reminder of DEADSTEAM itself (see also January 31, 16, 11), plus mini-biographies of more of the authors, please to press here.
