The Dragon Page interview

Tuesday, April 7th, 2009

The inimitable Mikes over at the Dragon Page did an interview with me a couple weeks back, which I’m only just now posting because I only just listened to it, because I have a Weird Phobia about listening to myself on tape. I suspect this is a subconscious fear that what I recollected as a reasonable conversation wil come across on tape as the mad ranting of a professional psycho.  Or maybe it’s just a very subtle method of procrastination. I’ll think it over and get back to you.

All the presidents

Monday, April 6th, 2009

io9 put together a list of future presidents for the 21st century, and President Andrew Harrison from MIRRORED HEAVENS/BURNING SKIES has made the list!

THE AWESOME RETROFIT: Harrison rules from 2088-2093; other U.S. presidents include Lex Luthor, Victor Von Doom, Oprah Winfrey, the alien FXJKHR, and—my personal fave—Robert L. Booth from Judge Dredd, the man who started the Great Atom War that turned North America into radioactive wasteland!!!

THE ACTUAL TRUTH: As all loyal citizens know, President Andrew Harrison (aka “the Throne”) took power in 2088 as first president under the Reformed Constitution, and then proceeded to invoke the state of emergency clause; twenty-two years later, he continues to rule with absolute powers, presiding over an Inner Cabinet composed of scheming traitors loyal officers.

Heads down

Have been AWOL this week figuring out some details regarding the last 40,000 words of the Autumn Rain trilogy. Am still working the thing over, but in the meantime let me wish you a good weekend with . . . the epic speech of The Humongous in Road Warrior, complete with boomerang hijinx! Don’t let it be said I don’t love ya.
