One of the writers, C.S. Boyack, is a friend from Idaho. His stories always bring a smile, because in his paranormal world, anything is possible. Even unlikely creatures such as a yak, speak. Really? Yes, really. And, to top it off, he writes great stories. Craig visits with us today to tell us about the anthology. Let's see what he has to say.
Thanks, Gwen. I believe this is my first appearance here, and I’m excited about it. My door is always open to you if you ever want to spread the word about one of your projects.
Today, my topic is an anthology called Murder They Wrote. Seven fabulous authors contributed a short story, and I’m honored to stand among them.
The project was well thought out, because we had some assignments. This was to keep all the stories a bit unique. I had to pick a room, and a murder weapon. Makes perfect sense to me, because you don’t want seven stories about a crazed axe murderer. These were all supposed to be mysteries, so it wasn’t just a manhunt they wanted. We had to uncover some clues along the way.
I set mine in a mini mansion and chose the library. This bit of science fiction involves more along the lines of my main character than any kind of time travel or space opera. I also chose poison as the murder weapon. This won’t spoil too much, because you still have to sort it all out along with Jason Fogg.
Speaking of Jason, he was the result of a science fiction accident. He’s been with me for a long time, and you don’t have to read his previous stories to enjoy this one. If you like to delve a bit deeper, Jason has the ability to transform into fog. This allows him to disappear if he must, and to slip into places only insects could go. He has some limitations, but that only adds to the fun.
Jason has a private detective business in the Seattle area. Perfect cover for someone with his foggy tendencies. The big question is, can Jason run interference for his client who’s been accused of murder.
There are seven different stories in the collection, and I’ll let the blurb give you a taste of the others.
I hope some of your rabid fans will give it a chance. You may find a new favorite author.
A bit about C.S. Boyack...
C.S. came to fiction writing later in life than most authors. He always had to write, to one degree or another, as part of various jobs.
Early one winter morning, he conquered the internet and didn't feel like shoveling the sidewalk until the sun came up. He tried a few pages of fiction and got hooked.
C.S. doesn't like limitations and calls himself a writer of speculative fiction. It's a broad field, but he limits himself to science fiction, paranormal, and a bit of fantasy.
