Howie K. Bentley - The DMR Interview

Howie K. Bentley has been an important part of DMR Books since the very beginning. When I came up with the concept getting heavy metal musicians to write sword and sorcery stories, he was one of the first people I contacted. I could tell by reading the lyrics of his band Cauldron Born that his love and knowledge of the fantasy genre was not merely superficial. With the Swords of Steel Omnibus Edition coming out next week, I thought it would be a good time to learn more about the man who wrote such impressive tales as “All Will Be Righted on Samhain” and “Thannhausefeer’s Guest.”

Michael Tierney opened his first comic book store in 1982, but Mike is far from being a simple retailer.  As an Alderman, Mike has been a crusader for justice and a force for change in his city, and sometimes-illustrator and publisher of his series of comics and novels, The Wild Stars. It would take a fleet, six-man Barsoomian flyer full of two-headed aliens to wear as many hats as Mike Tierney, and keep a mad, Kaldane hatter in business to do so.

Richard L. Tierney - The DMR Interview

A good many Sword and Sorcery fans know Richard from his Red Sonja novels and maybe his Simon Magus tales published in the Swords Against Darkness anthologies (starting back in the late 1970s) if they are lucky. If that is the case, you are merely scratching the surface. Richard is the author of at least ten published novels, more than forty short stories and enough poetry to choke the proverbial horse.

David C. Smith - The DMR Interview, Part One

David C. Smith is one of the most well-respected sword and sorcery authors from the ‘70s. He’s also been a friend and supporter of DMR Books since the beginning. He has a brand new story in our brand new anthology Warlords, Warlocks & Witches, so I thought this would be a good time to learn more about his career, as well as his current endeavors.
