You've been set down in the middle of your latest book. Weapon of choice?

Amazing answer! I had never thought of faith as a weapon before, but yes.

What one trait do you have in common with your main character?

I think all our characters reflect the deepest parts of ourselves.
What historical figure would you most like to have lunch with?
William Shakespeare

Love it! Can I come too?
We are holding a banquet in honor of your awesomeness. What are we serving for dessert?
Ice Cream

A man after my own heart.
What fictional world would you most like to live in?

See? There you go again. Just what I would have chosen. :)

Thanks so much, Randy!

Randy Lindsay is a native of Arizona. From an early age, his mind traveled in new and unusual directions. His preoccupation with "what if" eventually led him to write speculative fiction. According to his wife, "everything is a story to Randy." And it is. The Gathering is his first novel, but he has been published in a variety of science-fiction and fantasy anthologies. He lives in Mesa with his wife and five of his nine children. If you want to find out more you can check out his website at

Robert Williams didn't expect an early honorable release from his mission, but upon his return home, he sees the reason for the surprise decision. Unemployment, rampant violence, and frequent food shortages have put the United States on the brink of another civil war. As the threads of society unravel, the Williams family must adapt to drastic changes as the long-foretold gathering begins to take place.
