Philip Mann – Oddball Jewish Paranormalism

Did you know orthodox jews are from the Galileo Quadrant? Some of them, anyway…

Philip MannHello all and welcome to our continuing series of author interviews.

Today’s guest is Montreal native Philip Mann, author of the Dark MUSE Jewish Paranormal series.

Care to take a guess how many? I’ll tell you now they wouldn’t all fit in a breadbox. Maybe a bread carton and probably a bread truck.

Thirty-seven (37)!

Perhaps one of those books deals with writer’s cramp?
