David Kubicek

Aren’t you dead?

To paraphrase Mark Twain on the premature publication of his obituary: The reports of my death have been greatly exaggerated. I have noticed that some online author/publication directories (yes, I’m talking about you, The Supernatural Index) list the dates 1944-1990 in parentheses after my name. For some reason the folks who compiled those directories confused me with another David Kubicek; I don’t know if that fellow had any connection to the writing/publishing industry, but I am not him.

Which writers influenced you the most?

Ray Bradbury was the seed from which my writing grew. I read The Martian Chronicles, then quickly devoured everything I could find that this amazing author had written. Ernest Hemingway and John Steinbeck also were strong influences. I also learned a lot from Stephen King, especially about writing novels.

What are you working on now?

A young adult dystopian novel that is loosely based on my novella “A Friend of the Family.”
