Beyond the Cover with Special Guest #1 NYT Bestselling Author Dean Koontz

February 10, 2020

1/20/2020
What more can you say about Dean Koontz? He’s one of the most prolific writers ever, and one of the most popular writers of the 20th and 21st Century. Dean has done almost everything a writer can do, but late in his career he decided it was time to do something different. Signing with Amazon for a novella series, that includes six stories that all roll together called “Nameless”. Amazon Prime members will get the books for FREE! Yep, you heard that right, FREE for Prime Members. We were lucky enough to be invited to Dean’s house and have a great three hour conversation with him. You will hear the the hour long interview we had with Dean, sitting in his office. The “Nameless” series consists of these six books: IN THE HEART OF THE FIRE, PHOTOGRAPHING THE DEAD, THE PRAYING MANTIS BRIDE, RED RAIN, THE MERCY OF SNAKES and MEMORIES OF TOMORROW.

Well this has been a week. Short version, as some of you may have read on Facebook and Twitter, is that I had to change hosts for this site and there were some major issues as a result basically taking the site completely down.

But, thanks to the wonderful folks @ Deena Warner Design, the site’s mostly back up. There’s a few errors on the back end, but you shouldn’t notice those and I should be back to adding information in the next few days.

Thanks for your continued support!

Ok folks, I’ve finally started digging into the fanzine content in earnest. This stuff is complicated on many levels. First off, Dean says that most of this content, without being specific about which content, isn’t actually by him. I’ve included his comments on the matter wherever appropriate. Second, I’ve listed relevant details and cross-references where I can which can force me to create other holding pages just to make the cross-reference work. Third, the letters. Ugh the letters. ‘Nuff said for now. Fourth, I’ve needed to add two whole new categories to the site: Art and Publisher. The former you can check out now, the latter will have to wait as I get further along. Just consider the placeholder page a massive tease for now.

Just the one item this week as I’ve been focusing on some other writing assignments and organizing the fanzines as most of them still need to be added to the site. I’m hoping to get to those soon.
