On the heels of a great review, Sci Fi Weekly has an interview with me up today. John Joseph Adams asked me a variety of fun, interesting questions--among the many topics, we talk about The Matrix, Star Trek novels, the addictive quality of entertainment, my trip to Portugal, my voice on Voyager, my creative influences, how I got started writing, and how Black Ep might actually kill us all. Here's an excerpt:
I'm still stunned by the trip to Portugal. There's a strange feeling of coming full circle. In 2003 I was an unpublished novelist, and one of my favorite authors, Neil Gaiman, was reading Idlewild, in Portugal. That alone was amazing. But in 2005 for my books to be translated into Portuguese and me flown out there to take interviews with the Lisbon media and speak with Portuguese fans? If you'd told me that back when I was writing Idlewild, I wouldn't have believed it.
You can read the complete interview here.
(Spoiler warning: If you've yet to read Idlewild, and you're the type of reader who likes to go into a story without having any surprises spoiled, you might want to give this interview a pass. If that's you, I'd say read my books first... and then the interview.)
