Twaddling and Bloggery

Wednesday, September 2nd, 2009

Mighty pleased to be part of September’s Hobart, for which Jensen Whelan read my little book then emailed me questions. To introduce the interview, Jensen says:

The Slide is the kind of first novel that makes you happy for the presence of books in the world. It’s weird and wild and hilarious and touching all at once.

It’s a hell of a nice discussion about  Zelda, fractals, THE INTERNET, satire, sadness, the loaded and self-serving way some people speak of traditional vs. experimental narratives, and gosh so much more. Then we close with a respectful and straight-faced invitation to Bret Anthony Johnston and Kevin Moffett for an old fashioned mini ramp throwdown at a yet-undisclosed location, with blurbs at stake.
