I like this series, but a lot of the questions are either very similar to things I have already done before, or to another question in the Authors Answer line-up. This week’s question is What authors, styles or intellectual movements have most influenced your writing?
Today it is time for the third part in my love letters to authors, and my subject is Tanith Lee. I’m not sure how well known she is these days, but I’m trying to do this more or less chronologically, and Tanith Lee is an author who has kept me company throughout much of my teenage years.
This is the part where I curse my unreliable long-term memory, because I cannot for the life of me remember how I actually came into possession of her books. They just always seemed to be there. However, I’m pretty sure that the first ever book I read by her was Volkhavaar.
