If you enjoyed yesterday’s podcast with me, Justine Larbalestier and Scott Westerfeld, part two is here. If you did not enjoy it, you may be no fun at all.
And here I’ve been waiting for some Zombiliciousness. Damn.
It’s not too late for him to throw some zombies into the mix . . .
Ooh. Ooh. Ooh. Ooh.
Once upon a time, Meester Scalzi challenged us to pledge our donations and force him to go to the Creation Museum. He set the bar at $250.
I say, we should now pledge to withhold our money from the Creation Museum and if we can withhold more than $250, he should have to include zombies (or at least one zombie) in the new book. That’s right. If 12.54 of us (@ $19.95 per ticket) pledge not to go to the Creation Museum, he should have to give us zombies.
I hereby promise not to visit the museum. There’s my $19.95. Only $230.05 to go. Woot.
There will be no zombies in the book. However, there may be werewolves.
o.k. werewolves are kinda cool too.
Werewolves are just fine, but they are no zombie replacement.
That brings to my mind the inevitable mix: zombie werewolves! Oh yeah.
I was hoping for more discussion of zombie-fighting tactics, John. Very disappointing. Perhaps you could write a zombie book someday. I don’t think the genre has been played out by any stretch. And I’m pretty sure that no zombie movie has yet had “Dead Man’s Party” in the soundtrack, yet, either.
And thanks for the podcast–was a fun listen. I think I need to pick up some Scott Westerfeld stuff soon.
How about magic weasels. Can we have some of those?
The reputation economy thing in Extras was pretty brilliant, I gotta say. Damned fine work for a Pluto-hater.
Tumbleweed: Funnily enough, that’s how Scott is known around our house too. That guy who writes books and hates Pluto.
It’s all Athena’s fault, really.
