Tarot and so

Things have been happening and I have been remiss in linking to them here.

My Weird Things column in The Guardian continues with thoughts on Todd Grimson, author of Stainless and possibly one of our greatest and most neglected horror writers.

At the SF Signal blog we discuss mainstream authors stepping across to genre fiction. I end up tinkering with the question instead of answering it.

40k Books interview me about short fiction and novellas. It was an interesting subject to consider.

World Fantasy was, as ever, at its most enjoyable at 2am while intensely discussing writing with other writers. I’ve been playing with a pack of tarot cards during my time in San Diego, with an idea they might make their way in to a story, which lead in to a deep conversation with new Nightshade author Rob Ziegler on the archetypal significance of the cards. Just one of many highlights of the conference that will hang with me for some time.
