  1. Is it just me? or does Mr Duncan look a lot like Peter Patrelli from Heroes? How cool is that?

    Off to read the interview.

  2. Steve: Not quite Gold Watch day, but definitely getting there. I’m on detached duty for the next couple months, teaching a specialized form of war fighting doctrine at various places around the country. Then out on Terminal Leave in June, retirement is official in August. But for all intents and purposes, I’m done going to work on a regular basis today. Whoohoo! I foresee some George Killian’s in my very immediate future. Thanks for the warm thoughts, Steve, which considering the -20 temps outside is the only warm thing in sight.

  5. Thanks for the interview – I’m at least going to stop over on Hal Duncan’s blog a few times soon.

    Though I have to correct him on a small thing and say it’s not the Dutch cartoons of Mohamed that sparked the controversy, they were Danish.

  6. He is wasting his time and energy on those multi-thousand-word blog entries that he should be using to write his books. Tsk, tsk, poor writing discipline.

  7. Lugo, people say that all the time about writers who blog. It might be true for some, but it’s definitely not true for the logorrheacs of the world like Scalzi and Hal. I particularly get the sense with Hal that his blogging gives him a place to work out his ideas and theories that than feed directly into his novels. His novels would suffer if he quit.
