About the Interview:
Interview with Keith Anthony Baird about his book In the Grimdark Strands of the Spinneret: A Fairy Tale For Elders
With a long career as a radio morning show host, Scott’s first novel, the mystery/thriller Dead Air was set in the radio world (and shortlisted for a Northern Lit Award in Ontario, Canada). Since then he has taken the reader to even stranger places, including the human bloodstream in his SF novel debut The Primus Labyrinth, a science fiction thriller that reviews compare to Michael Crichton and Dan Brown. Scott’s short fiction has been published in many science fiction magazines and anthologies. Fifteen of his SF/fantasy short stories have been gathered in the collection BEYOND: Stories Beyond Time, Technology, and the Stars. Many more SF novels are on the way. A professional member of the Canadian Authors Association and SF Canada, Scott’s distractions from writing include scuba diving, music, and collector cars. He lives with his wife on a private island in Northern Ontario.
MICHAEL PAUL KOZLOWSKY
Born in Bronx, New York, Michael Paul Kozlowsky is a former high school English/Film teacher and, writing as M.P. Kozlowsky, is the author of four children’s books — Frost, Juniper Berry, Rose Coffin and The Dyerville Tales. He lives in New York with his wife, two daughters and a rescue beagle named Huxley, and when he’s not reading or playing chess, he continues to write everything from poetry to screenplays to short stories, journalism, philosophy, and books for readers of all ages. SCARECROW HAS A GUN is his first adult novel, a work constructed in the aftermath of a chaotic and failed attempt to capture the trials and tribulations of his childhood, which continue to haunt him until this day. He struggles endlessly with memory’s torturous stranglehold over him, as, so he believes, do we all. He still dreams of one day becoming a stand-up comic. --This text refers to the paperback edition.

DAVID M. KELLY
David M. Kelly writes fast-paced, near-future sci-fi thrillers with engaging characters, cynical humor, and (mostly!) plausible science. He is the author of the Joe Ballen series (Mathematics of Eternity, Perimeter, Transformation Protocol, and Intersection), the Logan’s World series, and the Hyperia Jones sci-fi humor series.
David’s interest in science and technology began early. At the age of six his parents allowed him to stay up late into the night to watch the television broadcast of Neil Armstrong stepping on to the surface of the moon. From that day he was hooked on everything related to science and space.
An avid reader, he worked his way through the contents of the mobile library that visited his street, progressing through YA titles (or ‘juveniles’ as they were known back then) on to the classics of Robert Heinlein, Isaac Asimov, Arthur C. Clarke, and Harry Harrison.
Michael Landweber lives and writes in Washington, DC.
