Just a short entry this evening: a week or so ago I was interviewed about Blackdog by Shaun Farrell of Adventures in SciFi Publishing. You can listen to it here. I’m listening to it as I write this, which is kind of weird. Well, very weird, actually. Did I say that? Ooh, that was a good answer, that sounds interesting …. (I expected Mr Wicked to react more noisily to my voice coming out of the computer, but he’s lying down Being Good rather pointedly. I think he wants less computer and more Fun.) I was a bit worried after the interview was over, but I seem to have been more coherent than I thought; it was a tad on the late side, the interviewer and I being on opposite sides of the continent, and I’m not at my best late at night. It was a fun conversation, and a spin-off from it is a rather long essay/guest-post (or rant about baled hay), which I wrote for Shaun and co. about “Five Things You Shouldn’t Do in Epic Fantasy”. It will be linked to from the interview, once it’s up.
