3Q’s – Danger Slater literally has trademarked the Moon!

3Q2

Last week, I mentioned how season two invites were sent out and some of them were appearing before season one was finished – hence the red logo. Today is another one of the season two misfits to be featured before season one ends because of government red tape and release date promo’s. Actually no red tape. I’m just sarcastic.

And you know who else is hilariously sarcastic? Why the guy who arrives today for the 3Q’s! Mr. Danger Slater himself. I connected with the mysterious enigma that is Danger a number of years back and I’ve always been a fan of his style of Bizarro and the fantastic social media fun he has!

Welcome, Danger!

Steve: What does your writing time look like? Do you try to write at the same time each day? Do you have a word count you attempt to hit?

Slater: Most days I’ll wake up and read for about an hour to get my brain juices flowing and then I’ll sit down at the laptop and pound the keys for about three-to-four hours. Unless I’m under a deadline, I don’t force myself to go any longer or harder than that. I think setting aside dedicated writing time is more important than trying to hit a word count. Whether I am just editing that day or dumping a few thousand words on the page, the habitual aspect of it keeps the work steadily moving forward without having to stress too much about getting things done.

Steve: You win the lottery and the only condition is that you need to fund another author’s book to be made into a movie. What book would you choose to be filmed?

Slater: I’d give Max Booth III a million bucks to turn Maggots Screaming! into a gory dark comedy. Such a good book. Right up my alley. And I’ve talked with him about his desire to make a film version of it. I’d personally love to see it.

Steve: Tell me about your newest release (novel/story/poem/novella) and why someone should read it!

Slater: My newest book is called Moonfellows and it’s about a crew of unwilling people who are sent to the moon in the early 1900s and get trapped up there for the next several centuries. It’s kinda all over the place in terms of genre, but there are elements of body horror, comedy, spec-fic, alternate history, and sci-fi, all mixed together with this dark kind of existential throughline. It makes more sense in the text, I promise. It does a lot with a relatively low word count. It’s my best stuff to date. And people should read it because it’s fucking GOOD. Treat yourself to something different.

Steve: Bonus Question! If you could be an extra on any TV show, which one would it have been and why?

Slater: I am no extra, my friend. I am the goddamn star of the show! Haha! But to answer your question, I guess I would want to be one of the lice that live inside of Bob Ross’s beard in The Joy of Painting. I’d imagine it’d be pretty soothing, infesting Bob Ross.

Ha! That is great.

Thanks so much, Danger!
