The latest release from DMR Books is The Road to Infinity, a picaresque fantasy novel in the style of Jack Vance. I thought the public would want to know more about the man who wrote it, so here’s my Q&A session with Gael DeRoane.
What is it about Edgar Allan Poe? A writer of morbid poems and tales of terror who died 170 years ago, Poe stands today virtually without equal in the canon of American literature. Only Mark Twain and perhaps Ernest Hemingway can lay claim to anything like a similar stature in both critical opinion and popularity. Why should he be so central to our imagination now, in the 21st century?
This week: Howard Days, Fritz Leiber, Henry Kuttner, C.L. Moore, Weird Tales, Galad Elflandsson, Lin Carter, and more.
We have a new feature here on the DMR Blog to give some exposure to independent fantasy authors. Kicking things off is Jason J. Nugent, whose first book in the Curse of the Drakku series comes out today. Read the interview, then go check it out!
