My interview with the critically-lauded author Sam J. Miller is now up at the Washington Independent Review of Books. Sam and I talk about his books The Art of Starving, Blackfish City and his short fiction.
My interview with the multi award-winning literary horror writer Victor LaValle is now posted at the Washington Independent Review of Books.
I’m particularly proud of this one–I am a fan of LaValle’s work.
My interview with Theodora Goss, author of The Strange Case of the Alchemist’s Daughter, is now up at the Washington Independent Review of Books.
At first glance, Theodora Goss’ debut novel, The Strange Case of the Alchemist’s Daughter, is a mash-up genre novel in the vein of the TV show “Penny Dreadful” or the graphic novel The League of Extraordinary Gentlemen. The cast Goss works with includes cameos from iconic characters from classic gothic fiction and the mystery plot concerns the gruesome murders of women in the backstreets of London.
However, The Strange Case of the Alchemist’s Daughter is multi-layered and much more subversive than the “elevator pitch” blurb might lead one to believe.

My colleague Darin Bradley has a new collection of short fiction out this week– intriguingly entitled Light Both Foreign and Domestic (Underland Press). Bradley writes intellectually rigorous speculative fiction, informed by acute sociopolitical analysis and his background in literary theory. I interviewed him a few years ago.
BACK COVER COPY:
Over the last decade, Darin Bradley has been dissecting the future—from the prophetic Book that heralded the arrival of Salvage Country in Noise, to the impending repossession of our education in Chimpanzee, to the harrowing world of voyeuristic terrorism in Totem. Now, with Light Both Foreign and Domestic, he presents a collection of stories that reveal the persistent light of the human spirit, no matter the harrowing darkness that presses down on us.
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.
My interview with Marguerite Reed, author of the epic eco-feminist-military SF thriller (think there are enough descriptive tags?) Archangel is now up at the Washington Independent Review of Books.
While I was away, my interview with horror/dark fantasy author Dale Bailey posted on the Washington Independent Review of Books. You can check it out here.
Be sure to check out his literate, dark fiction. His new collection, THE END OF THE END OF EVERYTHING is excellent.
