Can you imagine my surprise when I saw my name mentioned on the websites of two of the authors I’ve interviewed? 🙂
If anyone thinks that Peter V Brett and David Anthony Durham are elitist (since so many uninformed people see the writers of fantasy -and SF- as elitist), they need to have their head’s read. Or maybe shaken. Along with Ben Bova, Karen Traviss and Jo Graham, Peter and David are some of the nicest people I’ve met (well, okay, met electronically), and I defy anyone who thinks differently. I mean, to reply to a guy they’ve never heard of from South Africa and help me out the way they have says a lot about who they are, don’t you think? To have given up their time to fiddle around on Word for me is absolutely great! 🙂
So, the next time some guy on a blog site, or some critic who doesn’t know what he’s talking about says that SF & Fantasy writers are elitist, help me by giving them an electronic clout against the head, will you?
