Recently I asked Crawford what he was reading. His reply:
I've recently read a non-fiction book called Paranormality by Professor Richard Wiseman, which does a fabulous job of blowing away some of the greatest myths of humanity. Mediums, psychics, spoon benders and all manner of charlatans all get a hammering from the voice of common sense and scientific endeavour. Although my novels all have a slightly paranormal edge to them, I prefer to stay grounded in reality.Visit Dean Crawford's website and blog.
I also read Robopocalypse by Daniel H Wilson, a superb "what-if?" novel about machines taking on mankind in a war for control of our planet. Remarkable ideas and cautionary tales perfectly bound together in a way that always inspires me as a reader: the more reality there is in a novel, the more believable it becomes.
Currently I'm not reading anything - I'm up to my neck in edits for the latest Ethan Warner novel!
