David Conyers Quotes
The great thing about the Cthulhu shared-world setting is that no one owns the copyright, so I'm not constrained by publisher conventions, and anything I write belongs to me. Other authors who have started their careers by writing Cthulhu tales are Charles Stross, Ramsey Campbell and Brian Lumley, and look at how successful they have become.
'Star Wars,' 'Doctor Who,' 'Forgotten Realms,' even 'Firefly' and 'The X-Files' have shared world novels and other media. I can't help but notice these settings have large shelf space in bookstores, so their publishers and authors are getting something right.
I'm a science fiction author at heart, and what I like about the Cthulhu Mythos setting is that, at its core, it is horror science fiction. I can take ideas from modern theoretical science, manipulate them in truly bizarre and weird ways, and remain true to the Cthulhu Mythos vision.
