SFNovelists Interview Now Up

There’s an interview with me about Infoquake and MultiReal that’s been posted to the SFNovelists.com group. Simon Haynes, author of the Hal Spacejock series, has put the interview up on his Blogspot blog and his LiveJournal, God bless him. Since this is a group interview, it might still pop up on other SFNovelists member blogs too. But Simon being first, I hereby declare that the man should be feted and celebrated like the gentleman and the scholar that he is. (Make sure to check out the free download of Hal Spacejock book 1 while you’re at it.)

Quick excerpt:

The political factions in the Jump 225 trilogy are divided between governmentalists and libertarians. If you were a character in the books, which would you be?

A lot of people who’ve read Infoquake assumed that my sympathies lie with the libertarians, because that’s where Natch’s sympathy lies. But I’m definitely more conflicted in my politics. I like to pick and choose among the different parties and philosophies. I have some definite liberal tendencies but a number of conservative ones as well.

You’ll discover in MultiReal that the political situation is much more nuanced than Natch makes it out to be in Infoquake. The central government, which really seems like the epitome of evil in Infoquake, is a conflicted organization itself with some do-gooders working in the fringes. And the libertarians are full of self-interested schemers who’ll stab you in the back.

Update July 8 @ 1:10 PM: SF author Mike Brotherton (Star Dragon, Spider Star) has posted the interview as well, and therefore deserves canonization.

Update July 11 @ 2:25 PM: And now my fellow Baltimore/Washington-area SF/F novelists Jeri Smith-Ready (Wicked Game, Eyes of Crow) and Mindy Klasky (Sorcery and the Single Girl, The Girl’s Guide to Witchcraft, the Glasswrights series) have posted the interview on their LiveJournals as well (link to Jeri’s LJ, link to Mindy’s LJ).

Update July 16 @ 8:35 PM: Also look for the interview at the Wyrdsmiths blog of Kelly McCullough (WebMage, Cybermancy) and the LiveJournal of David B. Coe (Rules of Ascension, Seeds of Betrayal).

    Nice post. I learn something new and challenging on blogs I stumbleupon every day.
    It’s always exciting to read through content from other authors and practice something from their web sites.
