This month’s State of the Thing features a synopsis of site upgrades, and two exclusive author interviews:
Elizabeth Kostova’s debut novel, The Historian was a hugely popular historical mystery. Switching gears from Dracula, it’s an art mystery that drives Kostova’s second novel The Swan Thieves, which is poised to follow in The Historian’s bestselling path.
Holly Black is well-known for The Spiderwick Chronicles and the Modern Tales of Faerie series. The Poison Eaters is Holly’s first short story collection. Filled with gritty scenes of magic enhantment and disenchantment, The Poison Eaters features previously published stories as well as new ones.
Next month our interviews will skew to the undead end of the spectrum, with Seth Grahame-Smith and Jonathan Maberry. Have a question for them? Post it here and we might use it in the upcoming interview.
