Blog Tour: Amazonia (by way of Tallahassee)

Another interview up today — this one by author Jeff VanderMeer (who is the one located in Tallahassee), and posted on the Amazon book blog Omnivoracious.

I’ve now seen the full ratings list (PDF) for the February issue. My book got the only “Gold” rating in the whole issue. ::dies again:: While I’m on the subject of RT, they interviewed me! It will show up in their March issue, paired with the interview of another Brooklyn-based author; RT is giving the borough a little love. A sample from the interview: 3. Why didn’t you set your books in the borough? Because I mostly write secondary-world (i.e., “not Earth”) fantasy and science fiction! And really, I have a nasty habit of destroying the worlds in which I …
