I have a new novel out — Nightmare City - a ghost story and adventure story combined. To mark the event, here are some of my thoughts on writing young adult fiction:

Edgar Allan Poe wrote a short story called The Imp of the Perverse. The imp was that demon inside all of us that pushes us to do the wrong thing, the thing that is certain to harm ourselves and others. You feel the imp inside you wh... Read more of this blog post »

Andrew Klavan and 3 other people liked Jeff Miller's review of Werewolf Cop:
Werewolf Cop by Andrew Klavan
"A title like "Werewolf Cop" sounds right out of a penny dreadful or the best of the pulps. A title that tells you about the story to expect.

So it ended up being what I suspected and not what I suspected. This was absolutely brilliant storytelling..." Read more of this review »

"I wrote a review, and my tablet crashed. This will not be as thorough as I would like.

Are we victims of our circumstances, or are we "captains of our soul"? How important is it to believe in something greater than ourselves? And when we are confro..." Read more of this review »

“You know what it's like," said Storm, "when you want to--just--pour a woman into a glass and--just-drink her--just drink her down, one gulp, body and soul?”
Andrew Klavan, The Uncanny

“If you're not at least willing to die for something- something that really matters- in the end, you die for nothing.”
Andrew Klavan, The Truth of the Matter

“It can be crazy hard. To keep your faith, to keep going. It can be harder than I ever would have imagined. Sometimes things happen to you, really bad things that aren't fair, things that make you feel so terrible you're not even sure who you are anymore or whether you're right or wrong, good or bad. Sometimes you feel like there's no one to turn to, and you're all alone and so scared you can hardly move and so tired you just want to curl up in a ball and go to sleep forever. I guess that's kind of the way Alex felt that last night I saw him. And that's the way I felt now. But I guess I had one advantage over Alex. I guess in some way I'd been training for this time my whole life. I'd been training every day, even in simple things, little things. I trained to keep my mind sharp when I went to school. I trained in karate to keep my body and spirit strong. Even when I just went to church, or when I prayed by myself, it was a kind of training: I was training to remember that I was not alone. I was never alone.”
Andrew Klavan

Jim Sir you used to be my favorite author of all time. However after seeing you dismantle Donald trump I am now going to burn all of your books that I own, and regret the money I spent on them. However it wasn't that much anyway. Have fun with Hillary and her snatch you decrepit old fool.
