I’ve been Yeti-Stomped

My interview with Patrick Wolohan of the Stomping on Yeti blog just went live. Patrick’s been running an interesting interview series called “Keeping an eye on….” Here’s how he explains it:

In June 2008, there was a SF Signal Mind Meld entitled Who Are Tomorrow’s Big Genre Stars. Basically, a group of genre superstars involved in editing, publishing, and writing weighed in on who they thought were going to be next genre heavy hitters in the years to come.

They were 21 names on the list, and Patrick’s been trying to follow up with each of them to hear what they’re working on now and to ask a few off-the-wall questions.

In this one we talk about the ghettoization of genre, the highlight of my career so far (emotionally speaking, I peaked early) and my favorite word. Patrick will also be publishing his review of The Devil’s Alphabet this week.

Oh, here’s the list of the other folks on that SF Signal list that he’s been keeping an eye on:

  • Paolo Bacigalupi
  • Jay Lake
  • David Moles
  • Benjamin Rosenbaum
  • Cory Doctorow
  • Ted Kosmatka
  • Chris Roberson
  • Vandana Singh
  • Daniel Abraham
  • Laird Barron
  • Elizabeth Bear
  • Alan DeNiro
  • Alex Irvine
  • Paul Melko
  • Naomi Novik
  • Tim Pratt
  • M. Rickert
  • Jason Stoddard

  1. Great interview DJ – you interview as well as you write! Can’t wait for my copy of the new book to arrive. Miss you & yours!

  2. I just realized the REAL genre your writing in… Doctor Who. Sci-Fi, Horror, Mystery with the odd bit of humor thrown in.

    For the first time in a VERY long time I watched a newish episode of Doctor Who last night. I had forgotten the horror/mystery part of the show. So too many Sundays at midnight during your formative years is now showing its effects.

  3. Yes, Mr. Melko, the laughter helps keep the darkness at bay.

    And Paul, Dr. Who has gotten darker in this new iteration. I’m digging it.

    And Laurie! Thanks for stopping by this little blogging outpost.
