A Letter of Introduction from Federico Axat

Dec 06, 2016 in Guest Posts, Mulholland Authors

I am writing these lines a long time after the last page of Kill the Next One. The book is no longer the same, and I am no longer the same. The life of a book in the outside world commences with the word “fin,” and a number of things have happened since then: translations, […]

A Soundtrack for Red Right Hand

Sep 13, 2016 in Guest Posts, Mulholland Authors, Music

When people ask about my writing process, I usually describe it as “blind panic.” The fact is, my approach differs wildly from book to book. Sometimes I outline. Sometimes I don’t.
