From the author
I get the impression that anyone who has ever asked me for a recommendation on where to start with my books doesn’t expect me to have a go-to answer, but I do. Without a doubt, every time they ask, I point them toward The Rise and Fall of Radiation Canary. I spent over a year preparing for this book, getting to know the characters and plotting their journey, so when the time came to actually write it, I felt like I was simply transcribing the lives of people I knew.
I wanted to have all their songs written before I started the novel, but I dove in without any. To my surprise, the songs came as I was writing. I knew the band, I just had to hear the voices before I could write for them. I love this novel because it encapsulates so many things about my writing. So many things I’ve wanted to put in my novels, and things that had been peppered through other novels, found a home in Radiation Canary.
That’s why I always tell people to start with it. Radiation Canary is one of my later novels (I think it was number 14 or 15) but in a weird way it contains the roots that branch out into everything else I write. It’s my keystone, and that’s why I’m honored that it’s going to be my (and Supposed Crimes’) first hardback release.
