I was on the Fantasy Fiends podcast!

I joined the guys on the Fantasy Fiends podcast to talk about the many faces of addiction, a theme that crops up again and again in my fiction.

During the show we talk about compulsion and addiction and the ways authors can use those themes in their work.

Andy and Stevie also gave a rousing performance of my short story Basilisk on a Yellow Field from my short story collection Her Name Was Red.

When Abel joins the travelling showman, passing off pre-apocalypse technology as objects of magic and intrigue, they come upon a horrifying sight: a group of children enslaved by the brutal drug gang The Family.

As he and the wizard take on the challenge of freeing the slaves, Abel must resist the temptations of a world without hope. To keep the kids from reliving his miserable existence, he’ll have to risk everything. Even having the wizard on his side may not be enough…
