If the title of your upcoming novella is ‘Those Who Go Forth Into The Empty Place Of Gods”, it had

better live up to it’s name. Even more so when one of the collaborators in the effort is friend of the show Curtis Lawson. To talk about this book , Curtis brought along his co-conspirator Doug Rinaldi.

Without giving away anything about this powerful, playful, horror filled and utterly charming novella, it combines aspects of television game shows, pop culture, The Princess Bride and Ghostbusters, while maintaining a “pulpy diorama of gore”. The conversation centered around:

  • The nature of the novella
  • How and why it became what it is
  • Was it as much fun to write as it is to read
  • How the two co-writers in arms met
  • What was their particular collaboration like
  • When can we expect more

All in all, this was one of the most relaxing conversations we have ever had. It is decidedly rare when one gets to read a book that asks the question: “Is my body nothing more than a decade old McDonald’s hamburger found in a jacket pocket?

Enjoy the chaos.
