I had the distinct pleasure of having e-Books India interview me. In the interview, I talk about The Collective SF and I reveal the official title and plot for my retelling of The Pied Piper of Hamelin:
“I’m also busy with a novel called, Hameln-13, for The Collective SF that will come out either in December or January next year. This is another shared universe setup, but also with a difference. On The Collective SF’s blog we have log entries from various “scribes” tethered to an entity known only as the God-Machine. Their duty is to record newly created histories and chronicle the past. Only something goes horribly wrong and instead of factual history, fairy tales and lore are mistaken for historical fact. Hameln-13 is my retelling of the Pied Piper of Hamelin legend, but in this story the setting is a remote alien planet in a star system not yet fully mapped.”
I also talk about my current projects, including my novella, “The Last Devil” for Kōsa Press’s anthology, Interspecies, that is releasing this December. I give some background to the birth of one of my books, The Seals of Abgal, and I explain the inspiration for my failed fantasy game proposal “The Dead God” that I’m now adapting into a novel of the same name.
