Jeff VanderMeer, author of some rather fine books himself, interviewed a whole bunch (well, four anyway) of more or less new fantasy authors for the Amazon book blog: me, Joe Abercrombie, Karen Miller and Brandon Sanderson. So that’s four sets of answers for the price of one. Part One of the interview, and Part Two. Plus, as an added extra, the out-takes.
In other news, it looks like the German edition of Winterbirth
is gradually emerging into the daylight: if a certain well-known online translation engine can be relied upon, Amazon.de
seems to be saying it’s in stock, at least. That doesn’t necessarily mean it’s out there in Germany’s bookstores just yet (although it might be – any info from German informants very gratefully received!), but it should be imminent.
