The Darrell Schweitzer Interview

Darrell Schweitzer has been a fanzine/genre magazine contributor and interviewer since the late 60s, a published author since the 70s and the editor of Weird Tales and various anthologies. He is considered a foremost anthologist of weird fiction, dark fantasy, and horror, having edited definitive collections of Lord Dunsany, H. P. Lovecraft, and Robert E. Howard.

He won the Asimov's Science Fiction's Readers' Award for his poetry and a World Fantasy Award for his editing.

His novel The Mask of the Sorcerer is often cited by Wolfe enthusiasts as within the Wolfe genre.
