Oh, Hey, Look, I’m Profiled in the New York Times

This is the fourth and final announcement of the day.

Remember when I went to New York last week to be interviewed by the New York Times? Now that interview is up, and it covers a wide range of topics, including Redshirts, my personal history and even this very blog. Plus it features special guest appearances by Cory Doctorow, Wil Wheaton and Josh Marshall (the latter of whom I went to high school with). It’s a pretty good profile, I’d say. And of course I’m thrilled to be profiled in the paper of record. Enjoy!

And, yeah: busy day.

I downloaded “Redshirts” onto my Mac and Barnes & Noble eReader won’t open it. So now I have to go buy it AGAIN on my Nook. Gonna read the bloody thing if I have to harelip somebody to do it!

@ John

I said “They can kiss my ass.”

Would you really want their lips within a Texas mile of your posterior?
Still, I like that you went to the Bender Bending Rodríguez school of…re-buttal!
Get it, cuz their asses and they can kiss your ass?
Oh my, I crack myself up.

@ rallychild

nice piece although the part at the end about the crying reeked of cheese

Government cheese?

I heard the catch in Wil’s voice during the third coda, and I found it eminently justified. I was driving, so I cowboyed up and soldiered on. That’s my story and I’m sticking to it.

I bought “Redshirts” this morning (in iBook form) because of the Times piece (sorry, I hadn’t heard of you before, but it’s been years since I regularly read SF, or even about SF). Finished a few minutes ago. I expected something like Douglas Adams, so I was immediately disappointed that it wasn’t zanier, but I kept reading, and man…what a good read. Thought-provoking. Real heart. You gave me a wonderful Sunday. Thanks!
