It took roughly a year to write DIE AND STAY DEAD. Like DYING IS MY BUSINESS, it went through a lot of different versions before it became the version you'll see when the novel comes out in September. Luckily, I have a great bunch of fellow writers I workshop with. Their input was spectacular and, at times, utterly lifesaving. Unfortunately, I'm also a very slow writer, and the plots for these novels are quite intricate, so it all adds up to taking a lot longer to write than I thought it would. Thanks for asking!(less)

Nimoy


Leonard Nimoy passed away this morning at the age of 83. Like most science-fiction nerds my age (or even not my age), I knew him best as Mr. Spock on the originalStar Trek. Those weekend reruns during my youth, as well as the late-night reruns during my high-school years, were vastly influential, helping me turn my imagination toward otherworldly creaturesand strange planets with eerie red sk...
