Duncan talks about some spy movies to brighten a dreary day and about her upcoming new book, a mystery, which is a genre change for her. Also explained is the connection of the new book, Supreme Madness of the Carnival Season, to an Edgar Allan Poe short story, “The Cask of Amontillado.”
This month’s promotion is Duncan’s second collection of espionage short fiction, Spy Flash, 25 flash fiction stories. The eBook of Spy Flash is on sale this month for 99¢, and you can find it at amazon.com/dp/B00AKEX062.
What happens when your parents are spies but your teacher insists they come to career day? The second story in Blood Vengeance is “Career Day,” and Natalia Bukharin has a lot of questions for Mai and Alexei about what they really do. The answers, however, are not forthcoming.
Blood Vengeance is FREE January 19 and 20 then after that 99¢ for the remainder of January. You can download it at amazon.com/dp/B007WWBX14.
Time to give some love to P. A. Duncan’s first collection of espionage short stories, Blood Vengeance. Published in 2012, these stories are the earliest ones featuring U.N. spies Mai Fisher and Alexei Bukharin, and they delve, of course, into history.
It’s Season 4, Episode 1 of the podcast where we talk about writing, spies, and writing about spies.
