Today’s Guest: Horror and fantasy novelist Tim Waggoner, author of Supernatural: The TV Series, The Roads Not Taken
Mr. Media is recorded live before a studio audience of urine-soaked old cat women—seriously, it stinks in here today, folks!… in the NEW new media capital of the world… St. Petersburg, Florida!
Mystery writers are not in the habit of literally presenting their readers with options.
Smoke and mirrors, misdirection, sleight-of-hand, tricks, and dead ends? Yes.
TIM WAGGONER podcast excerpt: “Normally, in the TV series, it can turn out pretty bad for Sam and Dean, but they still move; the series keeps going. But I could have the luxury of the series just ending if the readers chooses the wrong path!”
But that’s exactly the job before Tim Waggoner, an experienced author of fantasy and horror, who just published his second novel extending the franchise of The CW’s popular series, “Supernatural.”
In the Supernatural The TV Series book, The Roads Not Taken, Waggoner makes the printed page interactive, giving readers the chance to choose their own path at key turning points in the story.
If you think Sam and Dean should aim for the saber-tooth’s eye, turn to page 34.
If you think Sam and Dean should aim for the saber-tooth’s heart, keep reading.
Faced with choices, I just read it all. What would you do?
If you’re a fan of “Supernatural,” I have no doubt you’ll enjoy Waggoner’s continuing tales of the Winchester boys even if you can only imagine how good looking they are while you’re reading. And perhaps they will serve as an opening to this Ohio creative writing college instructor’s dozens of other fantasy and horror novels and short story collections, including Bone Whispers and The Nekropolis Archives.
