Author Query – Victoria Lamb [Blog Tour]

victorialamb-herlastassassinReturning for a visit to A Fantastical Librarian is historical novelist Victoria Lamb, author of the Lucy Morgan trilogy and The Tudor Witch trilogy. I’ve reviewed the first two Lucy Morgan books, The Queen’s Secret and His Dark Lady and I’m very much looking forward to reading the last instalment Her Last Assassin. Last year I was part of the blog tour for His Dark Lady and Victoria wrote me a lovely guest post on her research process. So for this year’s blog tour I asked her for an interview and you can find the results below. Keep an eye out for a review of the book in the next few months.  Continue reading »

Author Query – Anthony Riches

anthonyriches-theemperorsknivesToday I welcome historical novelist Anthony Riches to the blog. I decided last week to make May historical fiction month and because I have his last three books – The Wolf’s Gold, The Eagle’s Vengeance, The Emperor’s Knives – still waiting to be reviewed I also planned an Anthony Riches week. When I contacted Hodder about a possible interview or guest post, they asked whether I’d like to be part of the blog tour for The Emperor’s Knives with an interview this week and of course I said yes. So please check back in May for reviews of the books mentioned above and enjoy Anthony’s answers!  Continue reading »

Author Query – Justin Gustainis

justingustainis-knowndevilIn 2012 I read and reviewed Evil Dark, the second book in Justin Gustainis’ Haunted Scranton series. I really enjoyed it and I was really looking forward to the next book Known Devil, which I reviewed yesterday and which was just as fun as Evil Dark. The Haunted Scranton series is a super fun series that I think hasn’t had the attention it deserves, so I’m really pleased to be able to bring you an interview with its author Justin Gustainis. I had a lot of fun putting the questions together and Justin gave some really cool answers, so I hope you enjoy this interview.  Continue reading »

Author Query – Mazarkis Williams

Yesterday I brought you my review for The Emperor’s Knife, today I have an interview with Maz. I hope you enjoy Maz’s great answers!

Author Query – Geoffrey Gudgion

geoffreygudgion-saxonsbaneAt World Fantasy Con in Brighton last year, I was fortunate enough to spend some time chatting to Geoffrey Gudgion. He was quite charming and it made me want to read his debut Saxon’s Bane even more. I read it over Christmas and it immediately made my Favourite Debuts of 2013 list. But after I finished the book I had some questions and Geoff was gracious enough to answer them. There aren’t any spoilers for the book in there so even if you haven’t read the book yet, you can read the interview without getting spoiled. Let’s get to the interview!  Continue reading »

Editor Query – Jo Fletcher

jfblogoNot many SFF editors are well-established enough to have an imprint named after themselves. Jo Fletcher is one of those rare editors and in the two years Jo Fletcher Books has been running it has been putting out several great titles, including some of my favourite books of the past two years. So I was really pleased when Jo was gracious enough to answer some questions on JFB and on being an editor. I really enjoyed the chance to learn more about one of the editors whose taste I’ve come to appreciate enormously, I hope you do too.  Continue reading »

Author Query – Tim Powers [Blog Tour]

TimPowers-HideMeAmongtheGravesToday’s interview is one I’m quite excited about. I was really pleased to be approached about being part of the blog tour as I’ve been eyeing Tim Powers’ works for a while and Hide Me Among the Graves with its links to the Rossetti’s was especially intriguing as I love both Christina Rossetti’s poetry and Dante Gabriel’s painting. Unfortunately, due to the timing with my upcoming house move and World Fantasy Con coming up, a review wasn’t in the cards, but I was lucky enough to be able to do an interview and Tim Powers’ answers were even better than I could have hoped for. So I’m definitely going to try and say thank you in person at WFC! I hope you enjoy this interview.  Continue reading »

Editor Query: Jared Shurin – Jurassic London

pandamonium-coming soon - bigToday I bring you an interview with Jurassic London’s publisher and editor Jared Shurin. This is not the first time Jared has been interviewed on A Fantastical Librarian; I’ve previously interviewed him as one part of the dynamic duo behind the Pornokitsch blog. But as part of a Week of Pandemonium I wanted to re-interview him as the editor of Jurassic London, not as the purveyor of all things Pornokitsch. Jared was kind enough to agree to be interviewed again and I think it turned out to be quite an interesting (and funny) interview. I hope you’ll agree!     Continue reading »
