My interview with Charles Tan is on On the Flipside!
Every Monday, we’ll have a blog entry focusing on one of Flipside Digital Content’s titles.
Eliza Victoria is the author of Lower Myths.
What made you decide to combine speculative fiction with the other genres like crime and mystery?
I am fond of crime and mystery stories, and I am fond of speculative fiction (horror, fantasy, sci-fi), so I saw no reason not to mash them together! One of my favorite authors, Donna Tartt, writes murder mysteries with horror undertones, and her novels are very unsettling reads. One of my own murder mystery stories that recently appeared on Philippine Genre Stories (“Needle Rain”) contains elements of fantasy and horror. It can be surprising what you come up with, when you mix genres.
