So, screw Star Trek and Pacific Rim and transparently-manipulative surveys about nuclear power. It’s been a while since I’ve gone full narcissist; so here’s the latest in an occasional series of miscellaneous backlogged bits about me.
This first item is a bit stale — I linked to the first installment of Fatal Libelli’s interview with me a couple of months back— but since then, the entire thing has been posted both in Spanish and its native English. Each of its three parts interrogate me on different aspects of the trade (aliens, world-building, and me). There’s not a whole lot that rabid fans won’t have read before — but then again, how many of you are rabid fans?
Closer to home, a dude named Cameron McLeod interviewed me for his blog. It’s more domestic, lower profile, but the questions are more offbeat: they start with Rob Sawyer throwing in with the Why do New Atheists have to be so mean? crowd (I hadn’t actually realized he’d done that), wanders through subjects as diverse as hacktivism, Obama’s drones, and my aversion to twitter, and finishes off with the question “What is it with you and cats?” (Short answer: I admire anything that speaks truth to power. I like raccoons too.) Looking back on it now I get the sense I may have been feeling a bit grumpy when I answered some of those questions. On the other hand, I may have to rethink my aversion to twitter; given my apparent inability to keep up with my e-mails without falling behind on my writing, I may have to fall back on a more concise platform. Much as I loathe the twit mindset.
Finally, you may remember that I bragged about being able to cuddle a carnosaur at FinnCon last month. Here’s the proof:
I also got to eat an extremely small and flamboyant dildo.
There were other pictures too, but they weren’t quite so flattering. I’m told they’ll be accompanying Tähtivaeltaja‘s Cryocouch piece on me coming out in December.
Fortunately, they’ll all be in Finnish.
