Craig Schaefer's books have taken readers to the seamy edge of a criminal underworld drenched in shadow (the Daniel Faust series), to a world torn by war, poison and witchcraft (the Revanche Cycle), and across a modern America mired in occult mysteries and a conspiracy of lies (the Harmony Black series).

Despite this, people say he's strangely normal. Suspiciously normal, in fact. His home on the Web is www.craigschaeferbooks.com.

Yes, that's absolutely going to come up at some point; there's a whole story around the job-gone-awry (and some yet-to-hit-home consequences from it) waiting in the wings. Probably not before the next two books, though, due to the current story arc.(less)

Hex the Moon

Reading about how some young witches on TikTok had announced their intent to “hex the moon” for some reason (and also the fae, and the sun, I guess?), I couldn’t stop imagining how Daniel Faust would react to that news. Which, as it sometimes does, became a piece of random fiction. It had to be done. In my defense, I was left unsupervised. Happy Monday, y’all.

Inspiration can begin as a simple song, a sentence, a sunset and transform itself into 450 pages.

No relation. The last time I acted was for a short film I made in school as a media class graduation project, and everyone should be glad that was the last time I acted because wow, it was terrible. (The special effects weren't bad, though.)

Craig Schaefer, The Long Way Down

“If the world is full of monsters, someone has to be keeping us safe. Someone has to be fighting for us out there.”
