A Slow Update on the Mundane Train of Thought

posted on 6 Oct 2012 at 11:05 pm

While on holidays, I was interviewed by io9’s Charlie Jane Anders for an article on “mundane space opera” (following up a rant of mine on LJ from some years back, just before I started writing Astropolis). The article came out a couple of weeks ago: “How to Write a Killer Space Opera Without Breaking the Speed of Light”, featuring Charles Stross and Alistair Reynolds as well as little old me. I learned a lot reading their answers to the same questions. It’s giving me a familiar space opera itch!

I’ve also added a bunch of appearances to the site, including the Texas Book Festival, the World Fantasy Convention in Toronto, and Supanova Adelaide.
