New interview: The Usual Questions

A new interview with me is up at Festivale, an online arts and entertainment magazine created in Melbourne, Australia. The magazine has a long-running interview series called "The Usual Questions" that they've been asking of writers and other artists since they began the concept at the 1999 WorldCon in Melbourne, Australia.

The questions are always the same:

  • Has your interaction with fans, for example, at conventions, affected your work?
  • Is there any particular incident (a letter, a meeting, a comment that stands out?
  • Do you have a favourite author or book (or writer or film or series) that has influenced you or that you return to?
  • Who is the person you would most like to be trapped in a lift (elevator) with? or a spaceship?
  • Who is the person you would most DISlike to be trapped in a lift with? Or a spaceship?
  • What would you pack for space? (Is there a food, beverage, book, teddy bear, etc that you couldn't do without?)
  • What is the most important thing you would like to get/achieve from your work?
  • What is the special satisfaction of your work?
