Fantasy and horror author Daryl Gregory has a story for you. Spoonbenders (just out in trade paperback) tells the story of a family of dreamers gifted with psychic abilities of varying strengths and stability, how they became famous, how they fell apart, and how they tried to bring all the pieces back together again.
Daryl talks about his love of the heist story, and his delving into the research about psychic abilities done by the US and Russian governments, and studying up on magic tricks and illusions and the work done by both Yuri Geller and The Amazing Randi. There’s also a side trip into stories about Lovecraftian monster hunters, zombie civil rights, and an appreciation for the writers room for The Expanse.
