The Writer Will Take Your Questions Now (#120) -- Writer as Killer

How many characters have you killed during your writing career?

Counting the prison of super villains in "T-Minus One" (available in Show Me A Hero), more than 500. More than enough to put me on the FBI's Most Wanted if they were real.

But I really don't just kill them willy-nilly. Their deaths always serve a higher purpose. Like a cultist in a bad bargain movie robe, I sacrifice them to the Great God called Story.
