When I tell people my book is about the Peace Corps, they tend to think it’s a book about living in some hut with no electricity and no running water, which is pretty inaccurate. There was electricity. There were televisions. There were tons of satellite dishes. I probably drank more Coco-Cola and ate more Snickers […]

Booklist reviews our Bringing Up Father collection: “One of the most popular and longest-running comic strips. Soon, McManus  would develop into one of the funnies’ leading stylists.” And Publishers Weekly this week says of Geary’s new Famous Players: “His quirky b&w ink drawings are full of expression, recalling the melodrama of silent films.”

“Sfar & Trondheim get a huge chuckle out of subverting the genre and paying tribute to it- sometimes in the same panel. This new installment fully lives up to the praise Dungeon has garnered from sources as various as Asimov’s SF magazine and The New York Times Book Review.” Jeff Vandermeer in Realms of Fantasy […]

In my new book the former Turkmen leader Turkmenbashy isn’t a main character, but he’s very much a presence in the background of the story. I was in the country when he passed away (and I got to see his funeral procession which had a carriage holding his body pulled through the capital city of […]
