I can't remember who wrote it, but I remember reading that the plot of 'The Dinosaur Knights' is based on one of the crusades.

I think it's inevitable that any work of literature will reflect the time it's written in. I like the idea of 'death of the author' in theory, but I don't really believe it's much use in practice.

I wouldn't be surprised if we see a lot more books about charismatic leaders brainwashing large groups of people to take over places in the coming years. In fact, I look forward to it.

I started out wanting to write fun adventure novels, but ever since 2011 all I've wanted to write about is how evil dictatorships are, how they ruin countless innocent lives and how it is a moral imperative to destroy them.
