As a warm up to an interview I’ll be doing shortly with Bram Stoker award winning novelist, Brian Keene, here is a little something I wrote around 2006 or so. I’d love to reference where I first published this, but for the life of me I just can’t recall so if you happen to do a search that turns up it’s original home, feel free to let me know. At present, this book is now sold out by Biting Dog Press, but I figured I would re-post it here along with interviews with author, publisher and artist since it offers a nice glimpse into the process of making the book its self and how Brian came to write the story found inside.
David Dinsmore – Actually, Brian submitted another story first called Bunnies In August. George and I both liked the story but it just didn’t conjure up the images that we needed for the presentation. After we gave it some thought, we asked for something to do with Ob from The Rising. Here I should mention that I usually never ask for anything in particular from an author; I think it stymies the creative juices and, more importantly, I think when asking for something specific you run the risk of overlooking something great that he or she might have tucked away either in the drawer or in their head.
