Where Did The Idea For Spartan Company Come From?

Most of my stories start with just a nugget of an idea. For Spartan Company, I wondered what it would be like to be hunted. I quickly developed a world with a variety of intelligent species whose culture is built around fighting one another.

book cover of The Fisherman underwater


Every fall, I get an urge to read a good horror story. Preferably nothing gory, but rife with horrific oddities and chill-inducing moments. I’ll award bonus points if it’s got Lovecraftian intrigue and bizarre pseudo-history. And at the heart of it all, I want a good story.

倪匡 倪匡's blog:

狐狸精,是天下偉大的存在。


人類不可一日無此君,男人不用說,對於女人,狐狸精也是救世主。


最簡單的例子:男人一有了狐狸精,心中有愧,對家裏的老婆一定更好。


所有的八婆必然反對這個理論,但是照照鏡子,妳們和狐狸精最大的不同是——當狐狸精在喊:親愛的,我來了,我來了的時候,妳們瞪大了眼睛:喂,天花板的漆掉光了,快叫修理師傅來塗一塗。


聰明的女人,總會容忍老公在外面擁有的一兩隻狐狸精。男人卻是長不大的孩子,男人證明他們不老,這是唯一的辦法,他們終會像灰姑娘一樣十二點之前回家。


可愛的狐狸精,也絕對不會把男人由太太的懷裏搶走。整天對著同一個長不大的男人,那有多悶!


那麼那些搶別人老公的狐狸精呢?八婆問:她們...

Tana French Interview with Tana French
Dublin crime novelist Tana French has the kind of critical reviews that other writers would…well, die for. Her debut murder mystery, In the Woods , won rave reviews and multiple literary prizes upon its release in 2007. Since then, her books have tended to haunt the bestseller lists, on both sides of the pond, and for months at a time. British newspaper The Independent has dubbed French "The First Lady of Irish Crime," and The Washington Post says she is the most important crime novelist to emerge in the past ten years. ...more
