Gar Anthony Haywood has just been interviewed on the Crime Writers of Color podcast. He covers his distinguished career as a crime writer (including his long-running, beloved Aaron Gunner series) but then focuses in on his latest book — the impossible to categorize In Things Unseen (Slant). Among other tidbits, he says his initial inspiration as a writer was The Twilight Zone with Rod Serling. Influences include Elmore Leonard, “in a league by himself.” Also: what if the mystery in a mystery novel was not a crime but a…miracle?
