In this month’s Locus Magazine

by Matt Ruff on September 6, 2017

So, somehow Lovecraft Country and I ended up on the cover of this month’s Locus.

As you’ll know if you’ve ever read the magazine, Locus’s interviews tend to be these rambling stream-of-consciousness type deals. I’d always wondered how they did those, and it’s pretty much what you’d guess: They get you in a room with a tape recorder, ask a bunch of questions, and then produce a raw transcript with the questions omitted. The result, after a bit of judicious editing, resembles a written record of someone telling stories to their imaginary friend. Which, come to think of it, is kind of what my novels are like, too.

You can find the magazine on newsstands now, or buy it online, here.

And speaking of things that are on sale, the ebook version of Lovecraft Country is just 99 cents right now! Get it while you can:

I’m currently working my way through Lovecraft Country and I’m having a great time reading it. After I’m done I’ll go back and pick up some more of Matt’s books and dive right in. As a side note, I would totally read every Orathea Blue graphic novel if they existed.

Is there going to be a sequel to your audio Novel Lovecraft Country?

I’m definitely considering it.
