This week’s anthology interview is not an interview. Sadly, author Paul D. Marks passed away on February 28, 2021, after several months of treatment for an illness he couldn’t beat.
There’s no photo, since I don’t have his permission. But his face will be familiar to many. It’s all over the Internet . . . on his Facebook personal and author pages, Wikipedia, his website, and more.
Here’s the review of Paul’s story, “Can’t Find My Way Home,” in Peace, Love, and Crime, as posted on King’s River Life.
In “Can’t Find My Way Home,” from Paul D. Marks, our narrator’s journey moves through time, with a different song framing a different year in the narrator’s life. The title song, from Blind Faith in 1969, is the perfect overarching theme for this sad story of youth, love, trust, betrayal, and vindication.Claire A.

Paul’s prolific writing career as a novelist and short story writer, with anthology editing credits as well, are supported by a long list of awards and distinctions. I’ll let those speak for him, through the links below where you can learn more about the man and his art.

It’s always sad to say a final goodbye to someone, even when you’ve not met them but have experienced something they’ve left behind. It is fitting, then, that Paul left so much behind that speaks to us and that one of his final published works is “Can’t Find My Way Home.”
Paul has gone home.
