The only other alternative that they have is to go head-to-head with US forces in the Persian Gulf, which would be a bad idea. So, expect Iran to increase her presence in Syria and start a war with Israel, via Hezbollah. Eventually, they will participate in a big alliance under the banner of Gog and Magog. Hezbollah eyes gains after Lebanon vote AFP.

With an increased number of seats in parliament, Hezbollah is expected with its allies to build a majority in its favour more easily on key issues such as the sensitive matter of the weapons it never laid down after the civil war. That country will be fed to the lions, and Israel will suffer.

Did you know that Hamas put their military command and control bunker underneath their main hospital? There are two Jerusalems — the political Jerusalem and the personal Jerualem.

In the political, the battle lines are defined, and they are drawn along religious, ethnic and national lines. People reach across the battle lines in Jerusalem. Their village suffered constant shelling and the threat of shelling from Syrian artillary, on the Golan Heights. When you do that for 20 years, you lose the right to own that particular piece of land. Think about how bad it would be, if Iran had her guns on the Golan. Your input is truly welcome. The second thing that happened—unfortunately there was a falling out between myself and that publisher, and I never got paid for those books.

As a result I went out and learned everything I could about the publishing industry. So I was screwed over in that deal, but I took it as a learning experience rather than getting bitter about it. As a result now I know the business very, very well. The step from that to writing fiction. I was determined that she would not have to do this for very long.

During that time, I did more research for another nonfiction book that I wanted to put out under my own name—that became Vampire Universe. I just did it as an experiment to see if I had any talent for fiction, because I had never tried fiction before. And the book did very well—it won awards, it spawned a trilogy, and suddenly I was in the horror world.

Part of the explosion of awareness came from winning the First Novel Award. Winning a Stoker is fantastic, but winning First Novel may be one of the most important Stokers you can win, because as much as I want to win for Best Novel one of these days, winning for First Novel indicates something about the potential of your career, and people turn and look at that.

And my desire was to live up to those expectations, for them and for myself. Did you intend Ghost Road Blues to be a trilogy from the start? I did. The first draft was about a million pages.

It was called Dark Harvest at the time.

Right around the time I started reaching out to an agent, there was a book published called Dark Harvest, and then there was another book called Dark Harvest, and then there was a movie called Dark Harvest, so I went back to I think the twenty-eighth title choice, which was Ghost Road Blues.

It got me my agent and it got me my deal. What caused that shift in setting and tone? One of my favorite writers growing up was Richard Matheson, who I met when I was a teenager. His novel I Am Legend was the first novel in which hard science was used to tell a horror story. Matheson gave me a copy of that when I was thirteen.

But for me as a writer, I want to tell something that would scare me. I am frightened of a bacterial or bio-weapon that is misused, so I write what scares me. The Pine Deep books received comparisons to Stephen King, especially in the way they used a small town and a large cast of characters.

Was King an influence on you? I love the book, and I recently re-read it and saw that there are quite a few mistakes in it, which I find charming because it was only his second novel and he was still working it out. I want my monsters mean, nasty and scary. I mean, I like Spike from Buffy. I want the story to be about people fighting monsters. My favorite sub-genre is the American Gothic.

Horror & Dark Fantasy

The Haunting of Hill House is my all-time favorite horror novel. So when I decided I wanted to write a novel, I made a short list of novels in that sub-genre that I thought were not only beautiful novels, but also spoke to me, and I read them first as a reader, then read them four or five times as a writer, deconstructing how they were built. So I actually reverse-engineered the basic plan from those novels.

By deconstructing them, I had a blueprint for what the American Gothic novel should look like in its base form. I did meet Stephen King shortly after the Stokers. We met at the Edgar Awards. I sat down and talked with him, and with Tabby—wonderful folks—and he had been up for an award the same year. Much love, Stevie. And I see and agree with his point. It allows you write a good novel, but at the same time it keeps you from imitating.

Your books are steeped in pop culture, be it references to scream queens Brinke Stevens and Debbie Rochon in Bad Moon Rising or the extensive knowledge of the Marvel universe on display in your graphic novels.

Do you consciously try to expose yourself to a lot of pop culture? I subscribed to Entertainment Weekly magazine from issue one.

I love the in-jokes. I like the layers of what you know and how fun it can be to have those in-jokes built in.

Of course there are going to be celebrities at a Halloween festival. Did any of them beg you to kill them? Actually, most of them were pretty adamant that I did not.

But I did give each of them action scenes—they all get to kick a little ass. You have a background in martial arts, and the Joe Ledger books feature some of the best descriptions around of fights and have raised the bar on action in horror novels. Was being able to pack a horror novel with your own fighting skills one of the reasons for writing Patient Zero the first Joe Ledger novel? You can kill my interest in something really quickly with a bad fight scene.

For example, the movie Taken, with Liam Neeson—the first two-thirds of it, the fight choreography is brilliant. Then he starts dodging machine-gun bullets and it all falls apart.

Jujitsu is all about physics. Physics will overcome brawn every time.

So I draw all that in there.The president is trapped aboard as the jet heads toward the heart of New York City. What caused that shift in setting and tone? Joe Ledger and the Department of Military Sciences go on the hunt for whoever is controlling these machines, but the every step of the way they are met with traps and shocks that strike to the very heart of the DMS.
