Exclusive Interview: A Conversation In Blood Author Paul S Kemp

In the realms of fantasy, the current trend is for a novel to not to just be a one-off story, but to instead be the first part of a trilogy, pentalogy, or some other set series. But it wasn’t always that way; and it need not be again, if writer Paul S Kemp has his way. While his new fantasy novel, A Conversation In Blood (hardcover, digital), is the third to feature the characters Egil and Nix, it’s not the end of the story that began with 2012’s The Hammer And The Blade and continued with 2013’s A Discourse In Steel, nor is the just the third chapter of five, seven, or nine. Or so Kemp explained when I spoke to him about this new novel and the series as a whole.
