Wandering the Web and Talking Writing

While things may have been quiet on my official web site, I’ve been wandering the Internet over the last few weeks talking about writing, ancient Arabia, and, naturally, historical fiction author Harold Lamb.

At SF Signal I explore the roots of Arabic fantasy.

Over at Grasping for the Wind I talked about why I loved issue 50 of Sandman, and the influence it had on my writing.

I talk about the influences and authors who led me to ancient Arabia over at the Civilian Reader site.

And I was interviewed at the Civilian Reader site, where I talk a little about the future of Dabir and Asim.

I was invited to talk about my favorite writer, historical fiction pioneer Harold Lamb, over at SffWriterchat. Swashbuckling stuff way ahead of its time.

Over at The Night Bazaar I took a look at three popular writer’s myths, and how true they are.

Lastly, a three part discussion of sword-and-sorcery recorded at the 2010 World Fantasy Convention went live over the last few weeks. Moderated by Jaym Gates and recorded by Patrick Hester, the panel included Alex Bledsoe, James Enge, John Fultz, Ryan Harvey, Howard Andrew Jones (that’s me!), John O’Neill, Sam Sykes, Jason Waltz, and Bill Ward.

I’m likely to be turning up in other places very soon, though mostly I’ll be writing!
