Indian Reads… #2: Chat with Author C G Salamander

 

Indian Reads… #2: Chat with C G Salamander about his book Palms Foster Home for Peculiar Stories

Interview with C G Salamander

After reading C G Salamander’s book I was intrigued by the workings of the mind that created Palms Foster Home for Peculiar Stories. And that’s the seed of this interview.

A fiction writer and a story teller, C G Salamander’s short stories and comics have been published in various anthologies and journals. His first book, Palms Foster Home for Peculiar Stories was released in 2015 and reviewed by me earlier.

In our chat we talked about –

– what inspired his stories, how did cabbagism come about
– why his book is described as a ‘collection of episodic short fiction belonging to the comic fantasy genre’
– how did he become a writer, his journey to getting published
– his use of a pseudonym vs real name
– his upcoming comic book

I didn’t know much about the comic side of him [the book one, that is 😀 ] and I got to learn a thing or two about comics as we talked. Comics have come a long way from from my childhood (of Tinkle, Phantom & Amar Chitra Katha) and I have some catching up to do. :) I’d known that comics were a rage in the US thanks to shows like Big Bang Theory and websites like Panels(from the Book Riot family) but I hadn’t realised how much it was catching on here too. Should get back to them, where do you suggest I start?

I also got to understand something of the mind behind Palms Foster Home for Peculiar Stories. Do checkout my interview with C. G. Salamander and tell me what you think in comments.

Also, do read the book, here’s my review of Palms Foster Home for Peculiar Stories. :)
