Last week I was interviewed by fanzine editor James Bacon for Journey Planet, the official fanzine of EasterCon, on the subject of fanzines and being nominated for the Best Fan Writer Hugo last year. Unbeknownst to the good Mr. Bacon, at the time we were talking I knew I was also nominated for Best Fan Writer this year, but because the nominations had not been officially announced I had to keep mum about it. So when he asked questions like “would you like to be nominated for Best Fan Writer again?” I had to pretend like I hadn’t been, yet. Cognitive dissonance is a funny thing. Sorry, James. I would have told you if I could have.
In any event, it’s a pretty good interview, and all of Journey Planet is well worth reading (and looking at, since it features sketches by Neil Gaiman), and you can get the PDF version of the zine here. My interview begins on page 21.
