In this episode I interview F. Paul Wilson, also Guest of Honor at Necon 32.
Writing bestsellers for over thirty years now (including the popular Repairman Jack series), Wilson’s first published novel, in 1976, was the medical thriller Healer. He’s also written science fiction, horror, and supernatural novels.
In his novel Midnight Mass, published in 2004, vampires try to take over the world. Wilson recently collaborated on a vampire novel, Draculas, with authors Jeff Strand (who I also interviewed in this series), Jack Kilborn (J. A. Konrath), and Blake Crouch. This novel features a different view of vampires than Midnight Mass. Wilson gives us the story behind writing both novels and answers the question, “Why the cross-wearing rabbi?”
This interview was recorded at a convention, so there are varying levels of background noise.
