Goodreads asked Casey Caracciolo:

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

Casey Caracciolo I was sitting there one day and I realized there was a big hole in the market because J.K. Rowling was not writing any more Potter books. I had had this idea a while ago about combining fantasy with tech, and it dawned on me that why not me. Why couldn't I be the guy that fills that whole and gets people excited about reading? I then started to think what would I want to see in a series . . . dragons, robots, wizards, vampires, werewolves, flying cars, wrist communicators, demons, imps, anime style battles, meta humans, anthropomorphic animals, etc. I thought, what if I took all the mythologies of the world and tried to make them all make sense in one mythos, but explain it with science and then set it all in the future. That's where The Shadow of the Gauntlet began.
