His answer to this was to found the ezine, Strange, Weird, and Wonderful Magazine and later SSW Publishing and Black Books Publishing, Inc.

Today, D.L. is continuing his quest to prove “there’s talent everywhere” through D.L. Russell Books, which is primarily an anthology publisher of all forms of Speculative Fiction, including Erotica and its many sub-genres.

Interview with DL Russell

Q. What prompted you to make an anthology about post Covid-19 futures?

A. For me, it was seeing all the pro sports teams shutting down that made me realize Covid-19 was going to change the world. And as a writer I began to imagine other changes, in the long and short term and before I knew it the idea for the Anthology was born.

Q. Would you say the tone of your anthology is dark and twisted? Or are there upbeat stories?

A. Well, as I say in the introduction of the book, these stories are not where we want to be tomorrow. They are quite dark in their view of man in a crisis, but there are enough healthy doses of humor to keep the them honest.

Q. Did you have some favorite stories in the anthology?

A. As a writer I would say my own story contribution was my favorite because it was inspired by an actual event involving my daughters cat. As an Editor I would have to say I don’t think there is a bad, dull, or even predictable story in the bunch. I love them all equally.

Q. What other projects are you working on that our readers might be interested in?

A. D.L. Russell Books is primarily an Anthology Publisher of all forms of Speculative Fiction including Erotica and all its Sub-Genres. We are currently seeking submission for a themed erotica Anthology and a horror/dark fantasy anthology.

Q. Where can our readers find out more about you?

A. www.dlrussellbooks.com is our site and there you’ll find more info about me, the titles currently available, future projects, and a few contributor bios. Our FB page is currently under construction as well.
