Smashwords Interview

What are you working on next?
I've always wanted to do a straight scifi work, so I finally accomplished that with ♂: the Novel: (MARS: the Novel).. My other novels are "scifi-ish," but not straight scifi. Slider was a psychological horror thriller on the bad karma of runaway self-indulgence, Eddie H. Christ was a religious fictional-historical book disguised as a satire, and now Siren bumps the horror up to a mythological level. ♂: THE NOVEL (Mars: the Novel) is a 25th Century post-terraforming existential thriller out on our 4th planet, which vanishes, by the way. As a physician, I had a lot of fun with the anatomy and physiology of the Martians.

Currently I am working on a novel, "The Life and Times of Climax Johnson," based on a short story in STARLESS and Bible Black.
Who are your favorite authors?
Alfred Bester, Philip K. Dick, Kim Stanley Robinson, Richard Powers, Milan Kundera, Walker Percy, Hugo and Dumas, Ayn Rand. And a bunch more.

♂ : The Novel is set in the 25th Century after the terraforming of Mars. The ṺberCollider has isolated the exotic chronoton particle, that quantum state vector that assigns time to all things. A second ṺberCollider is constructed on Mars to reconcile the present with a time epoch 3 billion years earlier so that the living Martians of that time could be brought to us. What could possibly go wrong?

DiLingo, the pox of vox, the crime of rhyme, the gutteral utteral. The first comedy constructed language. Hippocampal thinking at its best, with no amygdaloid inhibitions. Let the inner reptile out just by speaking. Forget the Sapir-Whorf Hypothesis, DiLingo is the Uncertainty Principle applied to linguistics such that there is the probability that the speaker of DiLingo is saying nothing at all.

After delving deep into the psychological terror of runaway self-indulgence in "Slider," and historical religious satire in "Eddie H. Christ," this urban fantasy tackles mythological horror. A throwback to the Sirens of ancient Greece is pitted against a similar throwback to the Harpies, in a setting perverted by dark matter, relativistic gravity, and magical realism.
