PhotobucketPaul Brazill, Noir master and indefatigable internet presence has been busy. He’s brought out the brilliant collection of stories based on his werewolf detective Roman Dalton, Drunk On The Moon. And he’s published Brit Grit Too, an anthology of some of the grittiest British writing around.

Paul met me at The Slaughterhouse, where we talked about the anthologies and how they’re doing.

Tell us about the latest on Drunk On The Moon.

Well, the paperback version of DRUNK ON THE MOON is now available from Amazon UK.

As I write, DOTM is number six in Amazon’s horror anthology chart and is one of their HOT NEW RELEASES.

K A Laity did a feature on DOTM for Unbound magazine.

Julia Madeleine got some kind words about DOTM from one of her tattoo parlour customers.

Elaine Ash interviewed me about DOTM and social media over at her blog.

That’s the story so far …

Do you see a further series for Roman Dalton?

I’m sure Roman Dalton will prowl for a very long time.

I’ve had a LOT of interest from people who would like to contribute to a second Drunk On The Moon anthology.

I think he attracts fans of noir, horror, sci-fi, crime and more. The City is a big place and open to a lot of spins.

My friend Richard Sanderson from Linear Obsessional Recordings compared Roman Dalton to Michael Moorcock’s Jerry Cornelius. Suits me, sir!

How are things going with Brit Grit Too?

Now, True Brit Grit- A Charity Anthology, to give it it’s full title, is really kicking botty.

It’s currently number 20 in the Amazon crime anthology chart and has been around that spot, or higher, since publication.

Do you have any more anthologies planned?

Well, Luca Veste has suggested I co-edit Off The Record 2 with him. There is bound to be another Drunk On The Moon, too.

Thank you Paul for a humorous and tight interview.

  1. Paul, do you ever sleep? I know rust never sleeps, but it must catch a cat nap here and there. Do you?
    Great stuff you are up to.

  2. AJ Hayes says:

    I wonder, Paul, when they put that properly ornate fence around you, the one with the large sign stating “Official Treasure Of The Noir Nation” hanging from it, I wonder if it will cramp your style. I doubt it will since you can evidently violate all laws of physics with your ability to be not just two places at the same time but evferyfriggin’where at the same time. I’ve always loved that ability of yours — even if I have no clue how you do it.

    Harrumph, back to the quickfire.

    About three stories into DOTM I realized it is (A) an absolutely smashing collection of wildly varied tales about the semi-human hand grenade that is Roman Dalton and (B) that is one of the few works of fiction that can favorably compared to Moorcock’s Elric series. I think even more so than his Cornelius series, because in those, he was traveling a familiar path from SF fandom’s already existing, mostly verbal legends of Jerry Cornelius.

    Anyhoo, nice to see you out and about PDB. thanks for the updates.

  3. Graham Smith says:

    Great interview both.

    As AJ says, Paul D Brazill is everywhere that is worth being.

    I’m honoured to be included in True Brit Grit along with all the wonderful writers who have been included.

  4. Col Bury says:

    The selfless ‘Brit Noir King’ is a force that will grow stronger.

    Enjoyed these punchy titbits.

    Regards,
    Col

  5. Paul and Richard are two writers I highly respect. They count me among their many fans!

  6. Thanks for the interview and the comments, all.

    A J if I’m a treasure it’s because I look as if I’ve just been dug up!

  7. He’s a force of nature–promoter, editor, writer, blogger, reviewer. One of a kind.

  8. Fantastic! So many great things coming out I can hardly keep up! Thanks.

  9. A regular tour de force!

  10. Les Edgerton says:

    Anything that Paul writes or edits is worth reading!

  11. Miss Alister says:

    You can stay up all day and night plugging your work but it’s a no go if you don’t have the right work. Here’s where Paul Brazill gets it: he knows what appeals and delivers in his own work and when involving others, he backs the best. The charts are cruel and fall fast, and in this hard world, to get even near the top of them is a staggering feat. Here’s to more and greater success, Paul et al – cheers!
