A Ten Question Interview With The Artist…E.S. Wynn

June 8, 2015 at 11:07 am (Uncategorized)

Your One Phone Call

Why do you write?

Because when you write, you can create a world where everything that happens, happens for a reason. I write to find peace in an otherwise chaotic world.

What books do you read?

Everything. Whatever catches my interest in the moment. Primarily sci-fi, but I enjoy learning about things I previously had no knowledge of.

What inspires you?

Women, coffee, good music and crazy people who have found success.

How did you know you wanted to be a writer and when?

First grade, when I learned how to write. I realized it was easier to paint the pictures in my head with words instead of crayons.

How do you deal with rejection?

I ignore it and keep pushing on.

Who are some writers you admire?

Peter Grandbois, Storm Constantine, Cormac McCarthy and Samuel R. Delany, to name a few.

Is writing the only artistic medium you do?

Recommended Read: The Hard Cold Shoulder by L A Sykes

April 29, 2015 at 8:14 am (Uncategorized)

Paul D. Brazill

la sykesPitkin, an insomniac, punch-drunk ex-cop haunted by the past, receives a phone call from a small-time criminal that sends him spiraling deep into Manchester’s sordid underbelly.

LA Sykes’ The Hard Cold Shoulder is a brutal Brit Grit/ noir. A hard-boiled, urban western laced with sharp social commentary.

A shot of the hard stuff.

Cursed Curiosities Anthology

August 15, 2014 at 12:59 pm (Uncategorized)

MARK TOMPKINS

Buyer Beware! If you’ve recently approached a strange emporium of oddities or antiquities, I hope you’ve taken a few things into consideration… What urge brought you there? Were you drawn to a particular item on display? Did it call out to you? Though everything inside was for sale, did you consider how much you were willing to spend? Perhaps you proffered the listed price, or perhaps you haggled the price down a bit. But did you consider the imperceptible fine print? You may just find you’ve paid a great deal more than what your parcel is worth. The following twenty-seven works chronicle such transactions.

Cursed Curiosities Cover

My short story, 10:30, is available in Barbwire Butterfly Books’ Cursed Curiosities anthology at Lulu.com. Come along on a journey where what you buy may just come back to haunt you.

The Destruction of Sodom and Gomorrah

July 10, 2014 at 10:00 pm (Uncategorized)

AmyBeth Inverness

Cover 02 SulfuringsThe next anthology in the Biblical Speculative Fiction series from Garden Gnome Publications came out this week! It’s available on Barnes & Noble, Amazon, Kobo, Smashwords, and other outlets.

Instead of interviewing all or a few of my antho-mates, I asked just one question to the writers who contributed to this anthology:

If it was your job (as a supernatural being) to destroy Sodom and Gomorrah, how would you do it?

ES WynnE.S. Wynn

Flash Fiction: [untranslatable]

I wouldn’t do it! I’d excise the cities from the surface and teleport them to another planet on the other side of the galaxy.

I’d aim a comet toward them and make a crater. Maybe I’d be lucky and get a few other cities, as well.

Short Story: The Mortician of Sodom

One snap of my electric fingers would decimate the debaucherous heathens.

Author Interview Corner

wynn wynn2 Hello, Mr. Wynn. Thanks for stopping by Author Interview Corner.

Thank you, Lindsey! It’s an honor to be featured here.

My first impression upon visiting your website was as follows: “Wow! This guy has a TON of books!” How long have you been writing, and how many projects do you put out in the average year?

I’ve been writing for almost my entire life. As soon as I learned how to wield a word, I was writing little stories, and by first grade I was writing short books. Everything I was writing then was very derivative of the cartoons or sci-fi shows I was hooked on at the time, so it wasn’t sale-able by any stretch of the imagination, but it was good practice and I loved doing it. I think I gravitated toward writing initially because I had a lot of images trapped in my imagination that I needed…

Short Story Candidates for the 2014 Hugo Award

January 18, 2014 at 10:10 am (Uncategorized)

J. C. Conway

The short story is a wonderful prose form. It is good for readers with limited time. It permits tight, creative stories. It is good for ideas and characters that do not necessarily require a novel to portray. For all of these reasons, I believe it is a particularly good form for the science-fiction genre, which is widely considered to be a genre of ideas.

So it seemed quite a shame in 2013, when there were only three, instead of the usual five, Hugo Award nominations in the category of short story—not that the nominees weren’t qualified. Those three stories were excellent. But I would have liked more.

The shame was even greater to the extent that the reason only three nominees were presented was because there were not enough nominations in the category to permit the selection of the usual five (sometimes six) nominees in the category.

Anyone that is…

2013 Retrospective

January 10, 2014 at 2:02 am (Uncategorized)

Looking back on 2013:

Another productive year! Here’s a selection of projects I’ve completed (or have been involved with) over the course of this year:

1. I created a total of twelve new books this year– not my personal best, but 2013 still squeaked in at 3rd place (In 2011, I created fifteen, and in 2010, thirteen.) Among these titles are the books shown here, as well as a number of others. You can find out about all of these books (and more) on Thunderune Publishing’s main website: http://www.thunderune.com

2. This year, I published a brand new work by British author L.A. Sykes through Thunderune Publishing– the hard-hitting novella entitled “The Hard Cold Shoulder.” If you’re into crime/noir, this guy writes some hot stuff that is definitely worth checking out.

3. Another project that went live this year was “Voyage of the Tereshkova.” Originally a Kickstarter project, Voyage of the Tereshkova went on to become a hybrid book/game set in the universe of The Cygnus War.

4. One of the crazy goals I decided to set for myself in 2012 was reaching fifty published books (in my name alone, no pen-name or ghost-written works included!) before I turn thirty. This September, I hit that goal when I published Lithium Liederkreis, the long-awaited fourth book in the Pink Carbide series.

5. But, of course, I wasn’t about to be stopped there! The last three books in the Pink Carbide series (Oxide Overture, Fullerene Symphony and Silicon Sonata) were all penned during the course of this year and are currently being revised and edited in preparation for their appearance in print in 2014. Exciting!

6. I was also involved in a ton of audio work this year. First and foremost, I became “The Voice” for Mark Slade’s Dark Dreams and Blackout City Podcasts, (darkdreamspodcast.blogspot.com). I also did a fair amount of my own audio work on the side, recording some of my own stories and shorts and even creating a short-lived series called “The Midnight Writer Podcast” which is available to listen to on Youtube.

7. Among the books published this year through Thunderune Publishing were Liber Luminopticon and Liber Velum Voces, two works that opened a whole new section of the press: the metaphysical section!

8. I was also involved with a number of projects outside of Thunderune Publishing this year, doing a fair amount of ghost writing and working with various authors on various published (or soon to be published) works. Among the projects to which I have contributed in 2013 are several available through Horrified Press, as I edited the anthology entitled “Undead In Pictures” and provided short stories for Schlock Magazine, Nightmare Illustrated and a couple of anthologies (including the pictured Doctor Who 50th homage entitled “Twelve.”) I also helped produce, edit and design Shawn Wunjo’s 11th book, the omnibus edition of her complete works entitled “Some Mothafu**in’ Sweet A** Books and S**t.”

9. Last but not least, a number of new authors were welcomed into the ranks at Thunderune Publishing in 2013, named here in no particular order: John Ogden, Gary Clifton, Nick Keller and Christopher S. Hinkle Sr. These authors are new but very talented, so take a chance and give one (or more) of them a read.
