In advance of my tour stop in Portland, Oregon, the Portland Mercury, that city’s fine alternative weekly, ran a short interview from me about Fuzzy Nation — but also then posted on the Web the nearly-complete interview I had with journalist Erik Henriksen. It’s actually just about the closet I’ve ever seen someone replicate in print form the drink-from-the-firehose complete hyperactivity I exhibit when I am an interview subject, so if you’re not completely burned out interviews of me by this point, I really recommend checking it out. Among the obvious topics (i.e., science fiction, writing, Fuzzy Nation, the OMW movie) we also touch upon why the new Star Trek movie sends me into a froth, burning effigies of John Adams, why books with messages usually suck, and novelizations of movies made from novels. It’s really everything you want in an interview and so much more. Drink-from-the-firehose more, in fact.
