What do travellers like to do? 'Real' travellers? Explore. They willingly enter into worlds unknown with their hearts in their hands. They don’t know if they’re going to get lost, waylaid or subdued by the encroaching sprawl of city and its people. Some might say that’s horrible. Others yet again would say its part and parcel of the experience. Writer's lead us to explore unknown worlds. Their tales can tear us up, leave us cold, take us to new heights and blow our minds. The writing of which I speak is the cross-genre work of author, Jeffrey Thomas.
Recently, I invited the author to talk about his work and promote his latest collection of fantastically weird fiction, Haunted Worlds. You can read the full interview and feature below.

Edward M. Lerner introduces us to a tale that at once is reminiscent of the stark ever winter world of the Yukon in Jack London’s White Fang or the bitter cold existence of Jeremiah Johnston in the film, starring Robert Redford, that bares his namesake. In Paradise Regained, Jan/Feb 2017 issue of Analog Magazine, we are ushered into a world trapped in cold and snow. A post-frontier future plight of a lone weary soul battling against time, elements and death to do as all living things do: survive.
