  1. Do you think you could have gotten somebody who was less of a raving fanboi to do the interview? Man, what a embarassment…

    Great interview. For me it was over too quickly. I am one of those unusual people from Massachusetts who was very upset at the time with the way Vietnam Vets were treated. I found it a weird world where draft dogers were praised and people who were drafted and served were maligned.

  3. As I said in a tweet, my only nit with the otherwise great interview is–I wanted to know about his most recent fantasy series (especially since it seems to be Rome-flavored)

  4. Paul, that was in the list of things to talk about but I had been asked to keep it at around an hour and when we hit that point I still had a half-dozen or so things to ask. Hopefully when the second installment comes out (July 2011, IIRC), we can schedule a second interview and concentrate on that and the other items I cut.

  5. I didn’t mean for that to sound too harsh (perhaps I should have used the voicemail line for better tonal inflections).

    It was a seriously cool interview with a seriously cool author.


  6. It was a great interview, Fred. You were a terrific interviewer, you got him talking and let him talk.

    One thing, though. Did he…uh…take a leak about halfway through?




  7. Ah, Mike, no. Not sure what you are talking about—I’ll have to listen again. Could have been a problem with the audio that I did not notice. Or it could have been background noise on my end (we were in the midst of a pretty wild blizzard).

  8. Anyone checked out Drake’s new Battlestations anthology yet?


  9. I have “Battlestations” in the original PB’s, but was going to see if the new printing was also an eBook.

    What a great interview. I am a fan of RCN through the Audible audio books, but was totally unaware of this SF community until I chanced on this site by accident.
