I’ve got people saying, “Hey, now that it’s April 2nd, are you going to tell us whether that announcement yesterday was an April Fool’s joke or not?” Well, my answer is — let’s have a poll about it, shall we?
I’m very interested in the poll results, I must say.
Fuzzy Nation is an example of what happens when an established writer takes creative risks—and has a lot of fun doing it. The novel is saturated with respect for Piper, affection for the source material, and an intellectual playfulness. It is charming without being trite; thought-provoking without being didactic.
It’s a fairly long interview, and it has lots of stuff in it, including things that aren’t necessarily spoilers but will give you a hint at some of the changes between the Fuzzy Nation and Little Fuzzy, so if that’s something you don’t want to know (or alternately, do), be aware.
