SPOTLIGHT ON: Robert J. Krog

 

How did you get involved in the upcoming Imaginarium convention? 

Stephen Zimmer, who had the misfortune to be seated beside me at Midsouthcon this past March, recruited me, because he’s a swell guy.  I wasn’t sure I could make it, due to various concerns, but he imaginatively saw ways through them.  It all goes back to the Big Z, folks.  He’s brilliant.

 

What is your latest release and what genre is it? 

My latest release is the horror short story, Eat Your Peas, in the Dark Oak Press anthology, Luna’s Children: Full Moon Mayhem, which is chock full of werewolf stories. 

 Full Moon Mayhem cover

Quick description of it. 

Eat Your Peas is about a pair of lawn care spray techs, one a conscientious worker and one a slacker, who hunt down / are hunted down by the werewolf that struck their home town in their youth. 

 

Something unique about it. 

The hero may be the first professional weed killer to ever be featured as a hero in a werewolf story, or any other story for that matter, though I’m not entirely sure.  J  The ending is probably unique as well, but I don’t want to ruin that.

Your short Bio. 

Robert J. Krog is the author of the Darrell Award winning novella, A Bag Full of Eyes, the collection, The Stone Maiden and Other Tales, and numerous short stories in a variety of publications from various small presses.  He is also the editor of the Dark Oak Press anthology, A Tall Ship, a Star, and Plunder, which features fantasy/sci fi/horror/historical, pirates stories.  His latest work is the werewolf story, Eat Your Peas, in the Dark Oak Press anthology Luna’s Children: Full Moon Mayhem.  When he isn’t writing, which is most of the time, he is daddying it up with his wife and three children in Memphis, TN, where he resides, and wasting his multiple, graduate degrees while he sprays weeds for a living as supervisor for the lawn care company with the zebra striped trucks.
