Oh, Look, I’m Interviewed

If you’ve got about 40 minutes to burn, there’s a podcast interview featuring me at Mur Lafferty’s I Should Be Writing blog. In it, interviewer Christopher Lester gets to experience me when I am well and truly overcaffeinated at the ConFusion convention last January. I opine on day jobs, humor in science fiction, the Best Fan Writer Hugo and why I personally wouldn’t have a BrainPal in my head. It’s a fun listen.

  1. Me no get the audio. Seems the server they host the podcasts on is (again) down. Or perhaps just Scalzied?

    Dude, you wouldn’t have a BrainPal installed? That would be *awesome*.

  3. Excellent, I love Mur’s podcast. Will have to download it at work though. And, yes, you were overcaffeinated at Confusion. I believe the supply of Coke Zero in Detroit was nil on Sunday afternoon due to the conference (where it was everywhere). Saturday afternoon you started to emit an audible hum you were vibrating so fast.

  4. imani – I am a 24 year old Jamaican who left foreign's riches and returned to Jamrock. For now. Yes, I'm insane, soon to be murdered etc.

    I heard it just fine and it was grrrrrrrreat! Seriously. At one point you even laughed like Spongebob who is my favourite character on the planet (along with Jane Eyre, Anthony Lamont, you know, the usual crowd).

  5. a) I love your daughter. “Missing my childhood”! (I am never letting my sons listen to this, otoh.)

    b) I would still be working full time if I hadn’t had children — I wrote 5 novels writing full-time, and I frankly found it a lot easier to do while working full-time.

  6. Great interview, but gah got me angry again that certain people want to usurp the word “fan” and think only they should be able to use it (no offense to Dave Langford).
