Two new interviews...

21 October 2014. Cullowhee, North Carolina.

Josie's Kaleidoscope

Here's a long interview conducted by writer Josie Cook... She bumped into me in Ohio when I was teaching at the Antioch Workshops last summer. Thank you, Josie!

And here's another at Tor.com:

The Pop Quiz at the End of the Universe... with me! Take a rocket ship to my planet, right here. And thank you to Katharine Duckett of Tor.

  1. The long interview is very nice; I'm a sucker for talk about process. I'm also glad you got to talk about poetry so much. Is there an actual pub date for Maze of Blood, then?

    1. Evidently it will be September 2015... Glad you liked it; I always like your talk about writing!

  2. Two lovely interviews. The first commenter on the Tor interview is right: Your answers were nicely substantive where others might have offered pithiness and snark.

    Am looking forward to Maze of Blood. Howard's die-hard fans can be...difficult. I'll be curious to see how they react to a fictionalized account of his life.

    Greetings from perfidious Pooler!

    1. Jeff,

      I am definitely prepared for some weird and possibly not that pleasant reactions! If once can ever be prepared...

      Perfidious indeed! My aunt's shade spits under the red light.

      Greetings from curious Cullowhee!

Alas, I must once again remind large numbers of Chinese salesmen and other worldwide peddlers that if they fall into the Gulf of Spam, they will be eaten by roaming Balrogs. The rest of you, lovers of grace, poetry, and horses (nod to Yeats--you do not have to be fond of horses), feel free to leave fascinating missives and curious arguments.
