AUTHOR JAMES AUSTIN McCORMICK HORROR, FANTASY & SCI-FI WRITER

Image
Today I have the pleasure of interviewing James Austin McCormick, another of my co-authors of the new Sci-fi and Fantasy anthology, Reality Glitch - 11 exciting stories from 11 authors from around the globe. This is the second interview of the series.

James is a college lecturer from England and a fan of all types of speculative fiction, most notably science fiction, horror, and sword & sorcery fantasy. Whenever possible, he tries to blend these elements in his own writing.

H.P. Lovecraft, Robert E. Howard, and Edgar Rice Burroughs were his first writing inspirations. More recently, James is inspired by Frank Herbert and Clive Barker, whose works, he says, he never grows tired of re-reading.

James lives in the rainy city of Manchester with his wife and two young daughters, the eldest of which is something of a budding writer herself.

Welcome James. I'm very happy you're here. Let's get to it, shall we?
