For those interested, there’s a new patron-only short story available over at my Patreon. “Vast, Black, Brooding” finds writer and fashionable weirdo, Charles Fort, investigating a monstrous mystery in a New York speakeasy, alongside Theodore Dreiser. Guest-starring Dutch Schultz and Bugsy Siegel! Continue reading “A Super Evil Thing”
do you have a favourite chaos god?
Not really. From a writer’s standpoint, they all have interesting aspects worth exploring.
have you read Scourge of Fate by robbie?
Not yet! But I’m hoping to do so soon, once I work through my to-be-read stack.
hypothetically speaking who would win in a fight Balthas Arum or Knossus Heavensen
As with every ‘who’d win’ question throughout history, it depends on context. Why are they fighting? What’s at stake? Who struck first? Are they in their right minds? Where is the fight taking place? Most importantly, who does the writer need to win?
But since coming up with all of that requires me to write a short story for free, I’m afraid you’re out of luck. Sorry!
which is your favourite chaos space marine army
I don’t have one. Space Marines, Chaos or otherwise, aren’t really my bag. If I had to pick…Emperor’s Children, I guess? I’ve read enough about them to have some affection for their utterly broken way of existence.
Last year, I wrote a number of posts about the world and characters of the Royal Occultist series, with the aim of exploring the interesting nooks and crannies of the mythos. Continue reading “Eldritch Encounters”
Amelia Gradt asks:
Do you accept fan art for your stories, and if so do you have a safe/secure means for fans of your work to send their art? I’ve seen some artists upload to twitter/tumblr but for non-twitter/tumblr users are there any other methods? I’d love to send you some Fabius art. Thanks!
I do accept fan art, but regrettably the only methods available at the moment are Twitter and Tumblr. I’ve considered setting up an email account for fan-mail, fan art and the like, but unfortunately, I haven’t gotten around to it yet – and probably won’t for a good while yet. You could try sending it to me via Facebook, if you like – I’d love to see it!
That goes for all fan art, really. I love seeing readers’ interpretations of my characters. Nothing makes my day more than to see that what I wrote inspired someone to create art of some sort. So if you have some – feel free to shoot me a link on Twitter at @JMReynolds and/or Tumblr at @occultdetectives.
Last week, I mentioned that I’d be opening the floor for reader questions here. Well, today is the day. So…if you have questions for me, relating to my work, now is the time to ask them. You can do so either on Twitter, using the tag #AskJosh, or in the comments of this post.
As questions come in, they’ll go into the mailbag. I’ll then select one at random and answer it here once a day, once a week or once a month, depending on the volume, and my schedule. Fair warning, though – some might not get answered immediately.
Note: To those of you who’ve already posted questions in the comments of the previous posts, don’t worry. They’ve already gone in the bag, so no need to post them here.
