I recently did an interview on essay-writing for one Todd Sullivan, who’s collecting a bunch of similar interviews on various aspects of writing. Todd picked up Science Fiction and the Economics of Utopia out of Aurealis and got me to talk about the essay and my approach to essay-writing for ten minutes.
Todd has posted the interview at YouTube (with images chosen by Todd). If I’m any use at all as an interviewee, the interview should speak for itself, so I won’t recapitulate what it says here. Thanks to Todd for taking an interest in the essay and I hope his listeners get something out of it despite all the um’s and err’s.
