KnippKnopp Interviews….Gregory Frost   4 comments

Gregory Frost is sharp.

...That's Mr. Frost to you, James.

…yes I am…and that’s Mr. Frost to you, James.

Everything about him – from his insightful and knowledgeable workshops, to his wry sense of humor, to his taut and tension filled writing style – exudes …um… sharpitude.  (Hey, I’m a writer – we’re allowed to make up words).  One of his latest short stories, “No Others are Genuine” appears in the October/November issue of Asimov Science Fiction Magazine and quickly landed in my top 20 short stories of all time.  Set in 1920s Chicago, it masterfully weaves a pervasive, mounting sense of dread as you follow the protagonist (a young boy in love with his boarding house neighbor) as he discovers the horrible truth about her disappearance. I highly recommend you pick up a copy and check it out.

Greg has been nominee or finalist for pretty much every major fantasy award out there (Nebula, Hugo, Theodore Sturgeon, James Tiptree, Jr), runs a fiction writing workshop at Swarthmore College, is an active member of high esteem at the Philadelphia Liars Club, and is a frequent workshop leader at the Philadelphia Writers’ Conference.  His works include the Shadow Bridge series (Shadow Bridge and Lord Tophet), Lyrec, and Fitchner’s Brides, a retelling of the Bluebeard story that the Philadelphia Inquirer book review called “…a deliciously evil literary pastiche that combines high gothic horror with a cracking good Victorian ghost story.”
