Interview with William A


master mentalism tricks

What’s the story behind the story? What inspired you to write Diary of an Atmospheric Sailor?

My inspiration for writing Diary of an Atmospheric Sailor was a book I bought at Barnes and Noble that was heavily promoted as steampunk science fiction, but I thought it missed the mark. (I won’t name it.) In the steampunk science fiction classics such as Anubis Gates and Infernal Devices, the authors explore a multitude of concepts, and nothing is too extreme or absurd. Because it takes place in the Victorian Age is no excuse for mediocrity or melodrama.

I wrote the novel in episodes that I posted on my website periodically and intend it as pure entertainment… and also to play with your mind a bit, test the limits of your perception of reality—the “shock of dysrecognition” as Philip K. Dick so aptly put it.

What’s your favorite genre to read? Is it the same as your favorite genre to write?

I love to read science fiction and have read classics such as “The Moon is a Harsh Mistress” multiple times.

What books are on your TBR pile right now?

“The Aeronaut’s Windlass” by Jim Butcher was recommended and I’m also looking forward to reading Don Winslow’s new one when it’s released in paperback.

What scene in your book was your favorite to write?

When the main characters step through a doorway at the Savoy in London and travel a thousand years into the past.

Do you have any quirky writing habits? (lucky mugs, cats on laps, etc.)

I write in the morning, hike in the afternoon, and email myself notes on the hiking trail.

Do you have a motto, quote, or philosophy you live by?

What goes around comes around.

If you could choose one thing for readers to remember after reading your book, what would it be?
