    Great interview.

    I've ordered a copy of Koenig's Little Odessa on the strength of it.

    Koenig's an interesting lost writer and thanks for reminding me of Bride of Blood which is overdue a re-read - I remember enjoying a lot. I interviewed him twenty years ago for Into The Badlands, and a very strange fellow he was too, if you're interested you can read the interview here - http://fivepubs. googlepages. com/newmexico
