Some Odd-Fish Goings On

James Kennedy is all over the web this week. Check out his interview in Chicagoist where he expounds more on how his book, The Order of Odd-Fish came to be and offers some interesting thoughts on Watchmen's Comedian. The Onion's Decider talks with James about being a fantasy writer in a post-Harry Potter world and he reveals that he actually doesn't read all that much fantasy writing. And a gentleman by the name of Paul Michael Murphy has declared it The Order of Odd-Fish Week on his blog during which he will celebrate all things Odd-Fish! If you've never had the pleasure of seeing James read from his book in person, the YouTube clip on this post is a nice approximation.
