Over at By The Way, I’m going absolutely crazy with the author interviews this week: I’m posting one a day through Friday, all the better to, you know, give these fabulous author maximum exposure during the holiday “what the Hell am I Going to Get Everyone For a Gift?” season. Clearly, the answer is: You should be getting people these author’s new books. Buy thousands of copies! Spread them all about the land! Like seeds to sprout minds! Go!
Er, anyway. Today’s interview features Karl Schroeder, whose latest book Sun of Suns has planet-sized fullerene balloons and swordfights and pretty much rocks the house in a serious way. Go now to receive his wisdom. Later this week, you’ll groove to the awesomeness of Karen Traviss, Charlie Stross, Sarah Hoyt and Sean Williams. It’s like a dream team lineup of science fiction and fantasy superheroes. They write! They fight crime! They bicker with Stan Lee dialogue! Well, perhaps not. But it would be interesting if they did.
Sorry, I keep getting tangentified. Here’s that link to the Karl Schroeder interview again. Check it out, won’t you?
