DJ: Hi Dave! Thanks for agreeing to do this interview!
For readers who aren’t familiar, could you tell us a little about yourself and what your role at WorldsWithoutEnd.com is?
Dave: Thanks for having me on, DJ. Worlds Without End is a fan site dedicated to helping genre fiction fans find the best books to read.
