Manuscripts Burn


"Manuscripts don't burn"
- Mikhail Bulgakov

Hi, I'm horror and science fiction author Steve Kozeniewski (pronounced: "causin' ooze key.") Welcome to my blog! You can also find me on Facebook, Twitter, Goodreads, and Amazon. You can e-mail me here, join my mailing list here, or request an e-autograph here. Free on this site you can listen to me recite one of my own short works, "The Thing Under the Bed."

Criminal Questionnaire

1. You’re a disappointment to your parents and everyone you used to love. How did it come to this?

2. What exactly are your plans at the farmstead? What will you settle for doing if Plan A turns out to be untenable?

3. Why did you choose this farmstead for your criminal activities? What is your special connection to this place?

4. Naturally you travel light, especially for an outing like this. What did you pack in your backpack? What one object should you not have brought, but you did anyway for sentimental reasons?

5. You once had to kill a person. Describe the circumstances, how you felt about it then, and how you feel about it today. (Or, if you’ve killed multiple people, describe the first time.)

6. What one secret will you give up anything to keep hidden?

7. What is your crippling drug addiction? Why didn’t you bring enough with you to get you through the night?

8. Where are you from and why is that still important to you?

9. What is your skill that you are immensely proud of and actually good at?

10. That last big score is just around the corner, so close you can taste it. What is your secret dream after you make that one last big score?

11. What is your favorite street vendor? What about it makes you keep going back?

12. You want to redeem yourself in someone’s eyes more than anything else in the world. Who is it?

13. What is your name? Who were you named after and why?
