Topic: Dead Lines

You're one of my favorite writers in the world. I just read Dead Lines in a single day. I love your science fiction (Queen of Angels is one of the finest novels ever written imho) and speculative thrillers like Quantico etc., but really loved what you did with Dead Lines. There was such a haunting sense of loneliness, dread and menace through the book; I couldn't put it down and didn't want to.

Anyway, my question is, do you plan on writing more horror because I would love to read more of it. I love your work. Please don't ever stop writing.

Thanks, Lisa! I love horror, but that's likely my last novel-length ghost story for a while. You might find a more complex, science fiction take on horror themes in CITY AT THE END OF TIME, which plays off of Clarke and Stapledon, but also William Hope Hodgson. Let me know what you think!
