GUEST: JEREMY MORPHIS

Author Jeremy Morphis joins to chat about Lovecraft, Cthulhu and his fantasy novel series the Strandian Tales. With stirring action, multiple magic systems, a good mix of drama and mystery, humor, fantastic dialogue and strong relationships, Jeremy's fiction sets itself apart and (as he reveals in this interview) began percolating years ago when he ditched class with his buddy (don't try this at home, kids).
