Daily Archives: April 2, 2011


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.

Clarkesworld Interview With Me

Over at Clarkesworld magazine, I’m interviewed by Jeremy L.C. Jones about Fuzzy Nation, H. Beam Piper, writing and a number of other topics. Jones also has nice things to say about Fuzzy:

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.
