M.G. Allen has appeared in Dark Moon Digest and Dark Eclipse before. Most recently, his short story, “Fast, Fresh and Delicious” was published in Dark Moon Digest 20.
1. Talk about how you came up with the idea for the story that appeared in DMD 20.
I had the premise of pizza delivery guy, Lance, who is just doing his thing, delivering pizzas. On his route, he confronts something very different on the other side of the door. Everybody knows a “Lance”. He’s the guy with the shitty car with a rattling engine that spews awful fumes from the muffler. He’s the guy at the counter buying a six pack of beer with spare change. He’s a man of perpetual bedhead wearing the same threadbare concert t-shirt from 2002. What you don’t know about this Lance is that he unwittingly stumbled into a world of monsters, conspiracy and a pizza company that just might be bent on worldwide human enslavement.
2. What is your favorite book?
I have too many favorite books. God, don’t get me started.
3. Do you get a lot of outside help with your writing or do you prefer to work on it alone?
I have a writer’s group I attend sometimes to keep myself in check. Mostly though I have to rely on my own (gulp!) expertise. Scary, I know.
4. What do you like to do when you are not writing?
Working, playing, digging underground with the moles, digging holes.
