Vandermeer has an interview up with KJ Bishop, who’s book The Etched City, I recently finished re-reading. Great stuff.
Why should readers pick up your book as opposed to, say, just about anybody else’s book?
K. J. Bishop: Readers should pick up my book and someone else’s. Readers: buy a book instead of a pizza, or half a pizza, or whatever fraction of a pizza you can get for a few bucks these days. It’s a diet that works.
Yea. That’s why there’s 1377 books in our house, and no food in the fridge.
