Tiny Heads

Behold!  It is a video of my Guest of Honor interview at last year’s Worldcon 75, conducted by Joshua Bilmes.  The first 20 minutes or so seems to be missing, but don’t worry, we’re just getting to the exciting part!

If you go full-screen, you may be able to actually see me, somewhere in the far distance.

thanks for posting this. I was particularly pleased to hear that you’d gotten a nibble for the continuation of the Metropolitan series. I just re-read both books and found myself hoping (yet again) that you’d be able to wrap them up. Fingers crossed.

P.S. I realized that I’ve never read any essay about the writing of This Is Not a Game and its sequels, of which I’m quite fond. I wonder whether they’re still too close in time, or perhaps you’ve nothing that you find interesting enough to disclose.

Pixlaw, here’s my essay on the Dagmar books:


And I see from the comments section that you read it and commented!

Don’t worry, though. We all grow forgetful as we age.

Wait, did I write this comment? Am I breathing? What’s the color of the sky today?

Actually, I HAD forgotten that I’d read the original post. I blame it all on the fact that I attended college in the 70s and minored in consciousness alteration.

Jesus, and now it turns out that my comment was written about 5 whole months ago. That’s just truly depressing. The 70s and my behavior therein have a lot to answer for.

As someone who did his best to experience the 70s to the full, I fully sympathize.

Could be worse, Pixlaw. I read one of David Drake’s latest missives, and completely forgot about reading it until I’d gotten 90% of the way through it about three weeks later and realized that the main characters were about to meet the guy they’d been searching for for most of the novel.

In fairness, it wasn’t really worth remembering after the second read either.
