Interview, Review

Two links of note for today:

1. An interview of me by Jeff VanderMeer, in which I reveal my true, unalloyed soul, and talk about my heretofore undescribed line of children’s titles, “The Fuzzy Ferrets.” You won’t want to miss this.

2. A nice review of Old Man’s War in January Magazine. Nice to see the book is still making the rounds with reviewers.

  1. John,

    What if – and I’m saying this hypothetically of course – if I read the library’s copy of OMW instead of buying my own, what happens to me?

  2. Nothing happens to you. Somewhere in the world, however, a cute little puppy dies. It was probably a cocker spaniel puppy.

  3. Whoa! Wait a minute. I work for a library. No puppies (or kitties for that matter) die when you check out a book… or video… or CD or anything!

    However, if you don’t return them on time…

  4. Well I read OMW at the library but then because of that I bought Ghost Brigades. Though I’m lending it to my friend so I guess that cuts down on it a bit.

    The interview reminded me of the funniest political smear I’ve heard from the Ontario provincial election. The Conservatives accused their opponent of being a “reptilian kitten eater from another planet”.

  6. Daddy, your book is fundamentally trite and in- authentic and its banality serves only to remind one of the yawning chasm of nothingness that awaits us all.

    They’re teaching Neitzsche to second graders in Ohio? Excellent! Back in my day we didn’t cover him until high school. As a lab exercise, we got to kill a hobo!

  7. Yeah, and that’s why you can’t find hobos anymore. Way to ruin it for the next generation, man.

  9. John, I’m really sorry, but it’s obvious your brain’s been infected by the ff rootkit virus, and that leaves us no choice. We’ll have to take off and nuke you from orbit. It’s the only way to be sure.

    (“Oyeah! Oyeah! The Writer with a thousand unsold Manuscripts!” I sometimes think I can still hear the ferrets’ blasphemous chanting.)

    We just can’t let this madness spread. I *told* you not to eat that damn Sony cd!
