Peephole In My Skull

Old Interview(s)

Posted by Karen

Hey everyone! Ah, sweet serendipity.

In the wake of yesterday’s post about Peat’s latest interview, we got pinged about another– one that never saw the light of the day. This one is brought to you courtesy of Jay Tomio at Boomtron. You can check out the full interview here!

Peter V. Brett

For the longest time I knew I had conducted an interview with Peter V. Brett but for some reason maybe the file never carried over during various iterations of the site. I finally found a copy in my email circa 2008…

Thanks so bunch to Jay for publishing this! I took a look and a lot of the answers still hold true. Who would have guessed that the question about a ‘Hollywood pitch’ would be so relevant right now?

For more old interview, feel free to check out the Interviews section of this site. There’s some good stuff there.

Latest Interview: Movie info/Graphic Novel

Posted by Karen

Hey everyone! We’ve had a bunch of news lately.

Between NYCC and the Warded Man being optioned, there’s still some confusion circulating. Recently Peat did an interview that goes a bit more in depth with exactly what’s going on and what it means. You can read the whole interview to get caught up on the latest info.


Peter V. Brett just announced that his popular Demon Cycle fantasy series was optioned for film, and now there’s word of a graphic novel, to boot. We discussed these, plus the hotly anticipated final novel in his series, at NYCC 2016.

We’re -so- excited. I know Peat has wanted to do a graphic novel for a long time now. Hopefully there will be more news in the works soon! A bit thanks to Matt Staggs for conducting and writing up the interview.

Fanart: Arlen And Demon

Posted by Karen

Hey everyone! Our newest piece of fanart was sent in by a French fan.

Do you ever get that moment while reading a scene where you just NEED to draw it? This was inspired by one of those moments. Check it out:

I love how delicate the wards are and the demon’s shading is just… wow. Very awesome. You can find the artist under the name Ombredif on Twitter.

Game Industry News: Desert Spear Audiobook Review

Posted by Karen

Hey everyone! Gotta love when reviewers continue the series.

A little over a year ago Michael Blaker reviewed The Warded Man audiobook on Game Industry News. Recently, he put out a second review that covers The Desert Spear.

This is a good review to check out if you’re interested in getting the audiobooks. It covers voicework and sound effects along with the overall plot and characters (plus it’s spoiler-free!).

screen-shot-2016-10-20-at-9-59-11-pmI’m back with the second book in The Demon Cycle… time to run across the dunes with The Desert Spear by Peter V. Brett!

If you’re still not convinced, check out this preview of the Desert Spear audiobook:

Pretty sweet, right?
