Three Big Online Appearances Today

I’ve got three big appearances around the Internet today! Join me, won’t you, on this journey into epic link-clicking…

1) I’m on John Scalzi’s blog, Whatever, with an essay for The Big Idea! Scalzi’s blog is read by pretty much every sf/f reader in the universe — including me and my wife — so to be part of his ongoing Big Idea series is a dream come true. Here’s a snippet:

I think anybody would be hard pressed to argue that Sinbad and the Eye of the Tiger is the best of the Ray Harryhausen Sinbad trilogy. Sure, it’s a passable and occasionally thrilling adventure, but it’s no 7th Voyage, or even Golden Voyage. (Although it does feature a post-Doctor Who Patrick Troughton, so it definitely has that in its favor!) And yet, the film’s influence on Dying Is My Business is enormous in ways I didn’t recognize until late in the process. Believe me, no one was more surprised than I was!

2) I’m also featured in a Q&A on the urban fantasy/suspense/horror website My Bookish Ways! Come see me perform the ultimate blasphemy of mentioning Big Trouble in Little China and The Golden Child in the same breath!

3) I’ve got another Q&A posted on urban fantasy author Suzanne Johnson’s blog, Preternatura! Come see me talk about my love for The Chronicles of Prydain, how Clive Barker’s Books of Blood changed my life, and why it’s so hard to kill off characters!
