Goodreads asked Carl D. Smith:

Where did you get the idea for your most recent book?

Carl D. Smith My secret love is ancient Rome, and I regret not studying it formally in college. As for the horror elements, its a very poorly veiled homage to Lovecraft, and his way of showing the effects the "bad guys" had on the protagonists. Also, I am obsessed with sea tales. Nostromo, Rime of the Ancient Mariner, and so on.
