I’ve talked with John Wesley Smith on his Destiny Survival Radio show about all of my recent books, and this week we discussed The Forge of Darkness, published earlier this month.
As I have learned from talking to him about my other novels, John has a knack for finding subtle things in the stories that I may not have been conscious of when writing them. It’s always interesting when he comes up with unexpected questions during the interview, and they actually help as I start thinking about the next book in the series. John’s take on The Forge of Darkness was that it was a downer of a story, but with a ray of hope at the end. I think he was spot on there, and as I told him the interview, the darkness referred to in this series is not just about the lights being out. It’s a look at the dark side of human nature too, and how desperation and opportunity can both bring out the worst in some people.
You can read John’s article on his Destiny Survival website and listen to the interview from the link near the bottom of that page.
As always, I am grateful to John for inviting me on his show to discuss one of my books, and I look forward to being his guest again.
