It’s been just over half a year since we started pestering and prodding various people in and around the science fiction field with our questions. We’ve had quite a bit of fun putting these together for you and we hope you’ve enjoyed them too. And to really find out, this week’s Mind Meld gives you, our loyal readers, the opportunity to answer the following questions:
- What do you think about the Mind Meld feature in general?
- What’s been your favorite entry and why?
- Are there any topics you’d like us to cover?
- Is there anyone we’ve missed that you would like to see included?
I’d also like to take this opportunity to explain a bit about how we put these together. John and I have a list with a bunch of names on it, containing authors, publicists, editors, artists and the like. For each question, we try and decide who, specifically, would be a good person to answer that particular question. We then start adding additional names to get to the point where we feel we have a wide enough net to ensure a decent number of answers. We do try to ask as broad a range of people as we can for each question.
As you might imagine, juggling the emails to 20+ people can be time consuming, not to mention putting together the final post. But it’s worth the effort, and we get to hobnob with a bunch of fine people in the field.
But now it’s your turn. Let us know what you think. If you’re a lurker, now’s your chance to take a minute and let us know your thoughts. We’d love to hear from all of you.
