As LA plunges into an occult gang war, mob sorceress Domino Riley must unravel a conspiracy that reaches beyond the magic-soaked mean streets into a world of myth and legend.

Former RPG designer and developer Greg Benage (BLUE PLANET, MIDNIGHT Campaign Setting) makes his fiction debut with MOB RULES, written as Cameron Haley, coming September 1, 2010, from Luna Books.

MOB RULES (320 pp., tbp, $14.95) is an urban fantasy novel of murder and magic, betrayal and redemption set in the supernatural underworld of Los Angeles. Over a ten-year career in the hobby games industry (Biohazard Games, Fantasy Flight Games), Benage wrote and developed dozens of RPG games and supplements, including the ENnie Award-winning MIDNIGHT and DAWNFORGE fantasy campaign settings.

Diana Rowland, author of MARK OF THE DEMON, says of his debut effort, “MOB RULES is exciting and fresh, with a complex and conflicted heroine who grabs your attention and doesn’t let go. This book will make you fall in love with urban fantasy all over again!”

In its starred review of the novel, Publishers Weekly calls MOB RULES a “zippy debut” whose “fast pacing, pungent wit, surprise twists, thoughtful discussions of morality, and escalating, cinematic battles keep the pages turning.”

A ten-year veteran of the hobby games industry, Greg Benage (writing as Cameron Haley) holds down a day job as a senior product manager at a large commercial bank and lives with his wife in Minneapolis. A prequel to MOB RULES, the novella “Retribution,” will be published in October in HARVEST MOON, an anthology with NYT bestselling authors Mercedes Lackey and Michelle Sagara. Benage is hard at work on a sequel, SKELETON CREW, coming in 2011.

In addition Greg has agreed to give us some of his time and answer a few questions regarding his novel, I am not sure yet but I do think a podcast could be ideal, let me see if I can set up one.

I haven't found any interviews to Greg about Midnight anywhere on the net. Could this be used as an opportunity to include a few questions about it, as well as Dawnforge?

I'd like to know if he used any themes (corruption of heroes/officials, possession, lost souls, etc) that were so prevalent in Midnight and modernized them for the novel.
