The best creative collaborations are the ones which result in a truly unified voice, the kind of work in which you can’t pick out who wrote what.

As often happens with art, the novella I’m Not Sam began life as something else.

Brian Keene is something of a leader in the horror genre. His books 'The Rising' and 'City of the Dead' helped resurrect the zombie subgenre that is still going strong today. When things began to go south at Leisure, the then-publisher of the huge majority of mass market paperback horror available at bookstores, he was among the first to go public with the issues before finally breaking away.

I gotta be honest right up front: I’ve never been a big Mick Garris fan. Garris is perhaps best known for his work adapting a variety of Stephen King books for television, including The Stand, The Shining, Desperation and, most recently, Bag of Bones.
