Interview with Matthew Kressel, Author of “King of Shards”


My interview with Matthew Kressel, author of King of Shards, the first in a series of fantasy novels inspired by Jewish mythology, is now up at the Washington Independent Review of Books. Matthew has always been a cheerleader of my own work, so I was pleased to do the interview and give his book exposure.

Scott Nicolay interviewed me for The Outer Dark, a podcast about weird, dark and horror fiction. Thanks to Scott for having me on–the conversation was wide ranging and touched on the Negritude movement, surrealism and Rihanna!
